JavaMemoryModel: Volatiles - where does SC work and PO doesn't?

Could folks point me to useful algorithms where Intel's Processor Ordering
(PO) or Sun's Partial Store Ordering (PSO) are not strong enough but SC with
a total ordering is strong enough? I would also be interested in use of
monitors where the SC is needed between volatiles and monitors, or for that
matter between multiple monitors.
