Ok, you may have damaged a head gasket which would explain the fans not working

have a leak down test done to confirm

No, the only one is the coolant sensor which has no bearing on the overheating.

Air is inserted into the cylinder and the pressure is monitored to see if it drops and look for moving the coolant in the radiator.
