Could be a plugged radiator. Always use the recommended thermostat temperature. Lower is usually not better or even a good idea.
I had the same problem and I did a rad flush that made a world of difference. When I drained the rad. it looked like mud. took almost 1/2 of hour of straight water before it was clear then added rad flush ran 20 mins. drained the rad . again it was disgusting so took another 20 mins. of flushing before I added the antifreeze. Temp. is down so happy
