Why do Mac's fans trigger so late?

Since I have upgraded to an SSD, my Mac's fans trigger very late (when the CPU temp is around 200-210 F). Before this temperature they run at about 2000 RPM. I got the CPU temp from iStat Menus. With my former HDD, the fans sped up at a CPU temperature of around 160 F.

The Apple Hardware Test did not find any problems. Can anyone tell me what possibly accounts for the sluggishness of the fans with such a high CPU temperature?

Any ideas will be appreciated.

It might be how the software is done and the cpu is supposed to get that hot but it’s just a guess.
