engine temp questions?????

so i got my xcal2 and i put in a 180 thermostat and i was just wondering what temp my engine should run normally at? its 75-80 degrees here all year round. also what would be a good temp to set my efan to come on at? so far with the data logging i've gotten temps from 186 all the way up to 230...... then i set the fan to come on at 198-200. now it dosen't go much past 204 at idle and goes back down to about 190 when the fan comes on.
