LS3 standard operating Temp

I was wondering if anyone out there can tell me what their standard operating Oil Temperature is on their Camaro.
I have a 2010 2SS RS LS3 with CAI and my temp guage is past the 200 degree mark. I did not really notice that it was ever that high before and was wondering if that was accurate.
Any help appreciated as I cant find any references online

Cool:-)

Thanks guys, I just wanted to make sure. Your mind starts playing tricks on you when you are not sure. I thought I smelled oil burning:-)

210 seems to be the "magic" number. Mine was same on both LS3 and my L99
