It sounds like you might have something else going on.
I have run full load at 45 Celsius and never seen it get to mid green.
Are you running a 914 or a 912. What rpm are you doing have you tried to fly in a cooler altitude over 1000 feet agl? What coolant are you using. Could you be using low octane fuel. This will cause detonation and high temps.

on the dry land we fly over , some time 500 feet and below are cooler than 1000 feet and above .
During cruise engine RPM is 5000 to avoid sink .
Mine is 912
