My Ride: 2001 BMW 316
Bmw 316 temp rising at idle but dropping at high revs

Hi I hope someone can solve this mystery for me, the temp needle on my 2001 316I SE stay stays at bang in center when I'm driving at high revs but as soon as the cars idle when im in standstill traffic or im driving at very low speeds the temp starts rising and creeping towards the red, if i keep the car revving constantly at about 4000rpm the temp starts to come down??? I recently changed the fan, expansion tank, water pump, thermostat and radiator and its been fine since, but is had this issue for the last 2days, any suggestions would be appreciated! Thank You.
