Hmmm, it can be made to work.  I have a 4-row Al
radiator (from 2B, bought it years ago when the
stocker broke, before they raised their prices) and
no AC.  The thermoswitch on the rad. does it's thing
switching the fan on and off, and presumeably the
thermostat is in good working order.  I have to really
work it to get the oil temp guage  above 100C (stock
200tq/3B oil cooler) and the VAG-COM shows group 000
engine temps right around 200F as it should be.
The only issue I have is that I have yet to hear
the after-run fan/ pump kick in.  I understand that
is not unusual for 3B/ AAN cars, but I still plan to
dig into it at some point.
Net I think the only components that could cause your
trouble are the thermoswitch and T-stat.  I would be
surprised if the stock radiator is really that
