optimal running temperatures

i've read SOO many different responses as to what water temp the car should be running at......ranging from 180-230 F. I want to just clear this up because my car will run anywhere between 180-220 on the highway. At first this scared the SHIT outta me but i just realized that my bike runs around 188-220, then that's when the fan kicks on. I just want to end this because currently i have my defi water temp gauge warning set at 190 and that buzzing can get quite annoying,

with the reg thermostat my car ran around (95) 203. now i have the 180 degree one in there so it sits around (85) 185. I would recomend going to the 180 degree thermostat becasue it gives you more room for error. I want to know at what temperature should you start to get worried?

the stock temperature gauge stinks, I could not see a difference on the stock gauge when my greddy gauge went between 70- 120 celcus.
