I've been programming since my early teens and like so many of us, I started Basic on the usual home computers like Atari 800XL, ZX Spectrum etc. "Turned pro" about 20 years ago.

I've been mostly doing C++ during this time, writing anything from device drivers for various operating systems to trading systems for banks.

I've updated the answer, short version is you might need a radiator or you might be able to flush out the blockages, but I wouldn't put money on the latter.

@Earlz, That would be another indicator that the radiator isn't providing the necessary cooling capacity - you're basically using the heat exchanger of the heater as an additional radiator. If you hadn't mentioned that the radiator was new(ish), the symptoms would look like a partially blocked radiator.

Under which circumstances does the temperature go up to 225 while driving? What sort of speeds?
