It's actually 72.6C, not 73C.

Believe what you like, though Doesn't matter to me!
That's tCase maximum, not core maximum. The tCase maximum is the max temp at the center of the IHS, which is usually 20-25°C below core maximum. The tjMax for Sandy Bridge chips is 98°C. They typically throttle around 90-95°C. 85°C for a peak during a stress test is perfectly fine.

If i did not care for my hardware, there would be no limit.
Only reason i cant OC my Q9650 further is because this board does not play nice with 8GB of RAM and causes instability for anything beyond 4.2
This CPU has far more potential.

But there is a project to bring it back. Not sure where their website is, but it exists.

Fair enough, I don't know the difference between those two to be honest (well, I do now!). I'm still keeping my chip under 70-80C, though, because I'm paranoid! Gotta admit 86C or so is still a lot of heat and can't be too great for it?

It wouldn't be good for a 24/7 temp (say, your temps while running Folding or something). It's not really going to hurt your chip at all for a 12-24 hour session of Prime testing. To be fair, I saw 85°C maximum at one point when I was trying to stabilize my 4.8GHz overclock, but that was with IBT (new linpack). Prime was about 10°C cooler and was my long-term test.

Just like with voltages, temperatures are all about what each specific user is comfortable with. While I don't think anyone would suggest that running 85°C 24/7 is good, I don't think there's anything wrong with either running that hot for stress tests or trying to avoid temps that high at all. It's all personal preference.
