Have you ever put your hand on the engine block when the high temp alarm goes off? The block should be very warm but not so hot you can't put your hand on it for awhile. My point being, could your alarm be malfunctioning indicating trouble when there isn't an issue?

Does it overheat at idle after just five minutes or when in gear under a load?
