what year is your car ? try to install 160* thermostat and get it tune to make fan turn on early, but I would just leave everything the way its, if it not over heat, nothing to worried about heheh.

Enjoy life...your engine runs cool, especially in the summer.

But make sure you hook a scanner up to it sometime to see what your temps really are accordning to your temp guage. Then you will know the exact temp you're running at by looking at your temp guage.
