Sounds to me you have a lazy thermostat. Its not closing fully or is very slow to close. I've had the same symptoms on numerous cars and a new stat did the trick.

In Topic: Oil In Coolant, But No Coolant In Oil ?!?

When the head gasket goes it doesn't always put coolant into the oil. It can just put oil into the coolant. You need to get it checked but it does sound like the head gasket is failing.

It does sound odd as you appear to have done everything you could. is the system still holding the pressure. Once cooled down are the pipes still hard and do you notice the system releasing pressure when you undo the cap.

 

If its not holding the pressure it would restrict circulation and the coolant will boil at a lower temperature.

 

If pressure in system is ok then all I can think is that there is a blockage in the radiator which you may be able to flush out with a hose.
