Default Mash temp calculation

Is there a calculator for water temp to get the right mash temp? For example, I am mashing 10.5#, so I need 3 1/4 gallons of water. What temp of the water will give me 153 for the mash?

If you use brewing software it should be calculated there.

This should help. It's a strike water temperature calculator from Brewheads.com

Looks like 167-168F
