I used a similar aftermarket fan and they've worked great down here in south Florida. The following were the parts I used totally rebuilding my cooling system and all are holding up quite well other than the aftermarket thermostats.

-- 2 ea - Upgr8 Universal High Performance 12V Slim Electric Cooling Radiator Fan With Fan Mounting Kit (14 Inch, Black) (amazon.com)
-- 1 ea - Motorad ST-36 Safety Lever Radiator Cap (amazon.com)
-- 1 ea - Wells TU179 Engine Coolant Temperature Sender (amazon.com)
-- 1 ea - Toyota 90916-03090 thermostat (amazon.com), I tried other thermostats but I kept having overheating issues. Comparing the Toyota ones to the aftermarket, the Toyota thermostats had a larger valve and opening, obviously allowing more coolant to flow, and it has a "jiggle" valve that the other's did not have. The jiggle valve is supposed to allow some coolant flow even when the thermostat is closed and to allow you to "burp" the coolant system easier.
-- The following thermostats caused overheating, they didn't have the "jiggle valve" and the control valve is a smaller diameter than the Toyota OEM one. The moment I replaced these with the Toyota thermostat listed above all was well. I have been informed that I could have drilled a small hole in the aftermarket thermostats to simulate the jiggle valve.

It may be that my sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
