Then above only means that the cooling system is fully circulating the
coolant at 102C, the system can still run temp. in excess of 108C. 
If you have a "too big  radiator " your system will NEVER reach the factory
designed operating temperature which can be in excess of 108C you will be
running "too cold".
The thermostat main function is to keep your engine at a "minimum" of
operating temperature the rest of the system (and ambient surrounding)
determine the high end of the operating temperature.
