without a thermostat, your car will take much longer to heat up. The reservoir overflowed maybe due to an low coolant level or air in the system. Since it was overheating before you replaced the radiator, maybe the head gaskets were compromised. You can perform a pressure test and or leak down test on the engine cylinders to verify.
