Thermo fan in XF Falcon

I have just installed a temp gauge in my 1987 XF carb which has a thermo fan instead of that awfull clutch fan. What is the optimal temp for the thermo fan to engage?
At the moment its set at 80 degrees.

If you got A/C make sure you connect the thermo fan to the A/C or you will destroy the compressor

Yes, the thermo is conected to the A/C aswell. ive been running this setup for about a year now with no problems, but just wondering if i should set the thermo to start at a hotter temp.

I used a davies craig fan, model DC31 from memory. All i did was make some brackets and bolted the fan into the existing plastic shroud.
