If it has a serpentine belt, make sure you installed it correctly, if it is wrong, the water pump may spin backwards, and not work correctly. Some cooling systems can get a large air pocket in them after the system has been opened, and this can cause overheating.

Just found this site but just in case you are still in trouble w/ overheating, mine was the resevoir - it had a tiny crack where the coolant was leaking out.
