Heat/recommended temps....
What is to happen if you run on the fringe and for an uncontroled reason your ambient (room) temps spike up.
That never happens

Well except during summer that is , lets hope you

A) Have ac/central air during summer months
B) Don't bump the thermostat to 90F during winter

If you're gonna "run on teh fringe"

I think that most people leave a fair amount of space between reported temps and max temps (10c-15c) because of the error level of the diodes reporting the temps. This is very evident on X-2's as one core will read 5c to 10c higher then the other one. If you look at the physical layout of the X-2 it is imposible for that delta to exist (in the close proximity of the 2 cores heat transfer from one core to the other would balance the temps beteen them) so I for one do not trust the reported temps. Therefore I leave some room for error.

A hot processor usually leads to a hot case, and I worry that the other components may not be as rugged. I don't know much about how heat affects the various pieces of the motherboard, particularly those surrounding the CPU, so I try to keep everything as cool as I can. Also, depending on your case layout, processor heat may be sucked into your power supply, and I'm pretty sure power supplies can have their effective lifespan significantly shortened by excessive heat.
