Do not know how you bleed system but try bleeding like this. Remove cap from overflow tank fill with antifreeze to full mark leave cap off and start vehicle and let idle once level in tank will start to rise this is normal once thermostat starts to open level in tank will drop add more antifreeze to full mark then put cap back.

Make sure your cooling fan(s) are functioning. If they are not energizing at the right temp, the heat will continue to build (especially if the car is not moving to force outside air over the radiator).
