Thermostat could be worn out and not opening properly.

I was kinda thinking that too, happened to me on a NEW thermostat. That or your rad might be clogged, restricting the flow.

As you can see overheating problems can be very frustrating... often a hit and miss. You can't tell until you change the parts. And nowadays even new parts can't always be trusted.

I'd say it's probably one of those two. Sounds like something is creating an obstruction, could very well be debris caught in the stat or a defective stat. You did say the defroster helps cool it down. That may not be attributed to the e-fan alone. I believe part of the coolant is routed through the heater core when you do that. Coolant that goes through the core doesn't go through the stat. That would make it more of a suspect... I don't see many others. Worth a try. You still have your fan shroud right?
