I'd say coolant temp sensor, but you were monitoring them which means the sensor itself can't be bad....?
The way in which I was monitoring the temps was from the Intravee II unit which I believe hooks into DME and the cluster. Perhaps it's a different system that actually controls the radiator fan due to coolant temp than what the car uses to display the temp to the driver?

Edit: also, not sure if this makes a difference but the coolant remained at 84/85 the whole way home. Mind you I was driving very cautiously and was at speed for most of the time but even when I got into the city and was driving up my multi-storey car park it stayed at 85.
