Default 180 degree thermostat

I have noticed that alot of MC owners upgrade to this thermostat, but I don't know why. I will be flushing my cooling system soon and converting to the green stuff so that'd be the best time to get in there and do this as well. But why should I. What are the benefits to doing it? Any cons to it?
