The cutting in temp. can be set fairly high. There are thousands of 
thermoswitches to choose from. Most have a M22 thread. Best is to have a 
T-piece in the top hose or a M22 boss soldered in the top tank

In my car the cutting-in temp. is about 98°C. Cutting-out temp.is about 
92°C. This with a 86°C thermostat and the thermoswitch in the top tank. 
Normal green coolant, closed cooling system with expansion bottle and no 
pressure. In the mountains I would use a 6psi radiator cap. So the 
normal running temp is steady at slightly over 86°C. Idling, in dense 
traffic or e.g. on steep hills the temp. will rise until the fan cuts in 
at 98°C after which the temp. drops to 92°C. The higher the temp. the 
better the cooling because of the delta T.
