Default 95 gt over heating problem, im puzzled!

I have a 95gt Mustang, mods are in my sig. anyways this over heating problem started about two weeks ago, i replaced the water pump, coolant sensor, t-stat and i flushed the radiator, i stuck a hose in the top radiator hose inlet and water came out of the bottom inlet pretty fast, I then stuck the water hose on the bottom inlet hose and it took awhile for it to come out of the top inlet, but it eventually came out but it seemed like it took a little bit, also the upper radiator hose gets extremely pressurized and the right side of the radiator was cold while the left was hot, seems weird because yesterday both sides were hot as was the lower radiator hose and today it is cold, is the lower radiator hose supposed to be cold? and when it does overheat it doesn't boil water out of the reservoir or anything, anyways i need this fixed any insight would be great thanks guys.

im thinking maybe the stock temp gauge? because when it does overheat no water boils, and no water comes out of the reservoir etc etc.

my stock gauge just started the same thing. it will read hot but all sensors are new, water pump, t stat, and hoses. so when it started reading hot i put a temp gun on it and it was right at 175 on the intake right by the sensor and 190 on tstat housing. i have heard stock gauges are famous for this
