If your compression tests are normal, then before you take Calaurion's advice above on getting a new radiator thank the heavens for being so kind.

And, oh, btw, please check if your clutch fan is working properly. Turn it with your fingers with the engine off, it should be difficult to push. If it turns pretty easily, then that needs to be replaced, and that could be your problem as well. Good luck.
