Hot weather yeast?

So I know some Belgian yeast and obviously the Saison yeasts work well at high temps but are there any others out the that function well at higher temps in the summer? Anyone have any favs for the summer months?

Several years ago I read an article on warm weather brewing (BYO I think) that said WLP008 is pretty good in warmer weather.

Keep in mind that almost all yeasts that do well at high temps like to be pitched at lower temps, like mid 60s.

I let WLP 515 ferment at 78 the last time I used it, and it came out fine. Like Denny said though, I did start out at 65-68 for a couple of days. This was for a De Koninck clone and it came out clean.
