The heater in the passenger compartment will not alleviate an overheating problem- and that problem is dangerous to your engine- look at the usual culprits- leak, thermostat, fan switch, fan relay- etc.

Coolant level at the right amount? Low coolant = hot engine. If level is OK then I would suspect a blockage in the system given all the ancillary parts you have changed. Also, make sure your dive belt is not slipping on the water pump pulley.
