If the smoke and fumes stopped 15 minutes in, that speaks volumes. I suspect that if you had used a silicate free product, you might not have overheated later as well.

Please repeat this exercise. Before that, please ensure that your aux fan, its switch, aux fan coolant temperature sensor, and the relevant fuses are all in good shape. These are backups to your fan clutch's cooling effect.
I will repeat the procedure again today. I'll keep you posted.
