What is a safe CPU Proximity temp for Core i7 27" iMac?

05 May 2016, 15:53

What are the min and max temps for the CPU, HDD & ODD fans if I set them to CPU Proximity?
I have just had my iMac repaired, the GPU popped, as did the temp sensor connection on the logic board. The repair centre installed Macs Fan Control and I can now hear myself think while I'm working. (The noise created by the fans running flat out was unbearable).

What is considered to be the maximum CPU proximity temperature?

What temperature can I safely set the CPU proximity fan to "Start to increase from"?

Below is the data requested:

Macs Fan Control 1.4.2
iMac12,2
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz [100]
GPU: Intel HD Graphics 3000 [active], AMD Radeon HD 6970M
Mac OS X 10.11.4

Fans:
ODD-min{1150}curr{1149}max{3800}mode{2,TC0p,79,90}
HDD-min{1100}curr{2155}max{5500}mode{2,TC0p,66,78}
CPU-min{940}curr{1189}max{4200}mode{2,TC0p,50,63}
