If the fan temp switch is mounted in the side of the head, that area will be hotter than if it had been mounted in the intake.

Example Only: Coolant Temp in cylinder head is 210.
Coolant Temp in intake is 180.

The temp difference you are seeing seems to be on the extreme side; but if the two senders are not mounted in a similar location you will see a difference in the readings.
