I've already replaced the thermostat and water

Blocked air flow through the radiator, cooling fans inoperative, restricted coolant flow inside the radiator, cooling system hoses collapsing and something I hate mention is a possible blown headgasket.

A dirty or plugged up radiator. Try having it flushed out but you may need to replace it. Tennis has other suggestions that you should try.
