Larger energy density implies increase in temp.
Simply not so. Others seem not to have directly addressed the
central misconception here so allow me.
Example: For a monatomic ideal gas at equilibrium
PV = Nkt = (2/3)U
energy density = U/V = (3/2)P
That is, energy density is directly proportional to equilibrium
pressure and has no direct connection to temperature.
