At one instance, at somebody else's place, the 6" more made a markedly difference. It greatly depends on what type and length of chimney you use, what the rest of the stove look like i.e. is it complicated or simple. In my workshop situation I couldn't find a discrepancy between a 16" and a 24" top riser. It's very low mass and heavy insulating, a riser which contain more mass could behave differently but that isn't tried out yet. I'd think, there's probably a sort of shifting boundary, specific to any given situation. Passing that, lengthening of the riser doesn't change much anymore.
