I don't understand why an 83C tstat would make a difference in maximum temperature when compared to an 87C tstat ... doesn't the tstat (assuming normal operation) simply determine the minimum operating temperature? (the "curve" to the increase side might start 5C higher, but this would still not drive the maximum temp, right?)
