Overheating issues

I have my own ideas on whats going on but I figure Id ask for everyone elses feedback.

Has anyone had problems keeping their oil cool or their water temp cool on a 90+ degree day even on the highway? Are you using the stock oil cooler? Aftermarket oil cooler? Do you have one of the 2 fans running constantly or when does your low speed fan turn on? What weight oil are you using? My temp gauge will go up to about 205, the fan/s turn on and drop it abruptly down to ~190. But the very instant the fan turns off, the temp starts climbing right back up again. Keep in mind this is cruising at 70-75 on the highway. Also when my car gets really hot like this my oil pressure drops SIGNIFICANTLY, and Im pretty sure its now caused bottom end damage.

School has started already, and I dont care to mess with my car until spring time, but it would be nice to hear if others have had this problem, or what you do to combat the terrible enemy known as heat.
