overheating at idle

Iíve got an overheating problem thatís driving me crazy. It runs hot
at an idle and when I raise the RPM the temperature drops. I thought
the fan would be the moth likely cause but it seems to be pulling
enough air. So at an idle with the temperature high I took the garden
hose and sprayed water a crossed the radiator and the temperature did
not drop. I raised the RPM and the temperature dropped. On the road
the faster I go the cooler it runs. Any help would be appreciated
