Usually overheating is caused by lack of flow through cooling system. Since the thermostat has been replaced, there could be a blockage at the radiator. This would show up by hot and cold spots on the radiator cooling fins and we use a temperature laser gun to check this. You can rule out the auxilary fan by seeing if it still overheats while driving over 30 mph consistantly. Usually the auxilary fan only plays a part when you are in stop and go traffic. There is usually a temperature sensor that activates the auxilary fan.
