It may sound like a simple question... Was the radiator cap replaced when the radiator was replaced? If not, start there. If it was, check to see if the coolant in the radiator looks like peanutbutter or if the oil on the dip stick looks the same. It could be a blown intake gasket, bad head gasket or a cracked head.
If your car is overheating extremely fast - the first thing to check is that your thermostat is opening. If it doesn't open then the car will overheat very quickly. When the thermostat opens water will be able to circulate through the radiator, and be cooled.
"Will start but will not turn over" What the hell do you mean by that ? If you can start your engine then check the upper coolant hose, this one should get hot first, then, after thermostat opens, the lower coolant hose should start getting hot also, check both hoses every 30 seconds wile the engine warms up to operating temp. If any of the above is out of spec then I would change your water pump.
well you should first hard wire the non working fan to the battery to see if it is ok, then I would check the engine coolant temperature sensor, it is the sensor that tells the computer to turn the radiator fan on
Make sure your fan is working properly. When you turn on the heater you are forcing the fan to cool the radiator. It may not be turning on automatically when it is supposed to. Let us know if this helps..
