What shapw is your fan shroud in?

When wash the last time the radiator and whole cooling systems was flushed?

As mentioned you will probably run just as hot with a lower temp thermostat until you find the issue
I kinda thought that ( lower temp 'stat')

My shroud is perfect, clutch fan new, radiator new ( standard size), cooling system fresh.... nothing blocking front.

I will get a heavy duty radiator.....
