Look for air bubbles in the overflow thank or oil in the coolant.
Those that had this happen to them will certainly chime in.
In the meawhile, answering Subiegal would be helpful to those trying to help you: what do you mean by "my radiator blew up"? What symptoms? How did it happen?

after verifying that your radiator is full and burped properly, you should make a pencil mark on your expansion tank, then drive the car for a 20 mile run to get the system fully heated up and up to pressure. then check the expansion tank. the level should have risen. if you see bubbles coming from the tube connected to the radiator, either you haven't completely burped the system, or you've got problems (head gasket, etc).

When filling radaitor...Fill it till full with the radiator bleader screw out.. also fill it through the bleder screw side also. Fill it till fluid pours from both sides.
Did you get a new thermostat from Subaru? Some aftermarkets do not work very well.... Test your system by removing the old thermostat and cutting the center out of it and place back in ( you might have to replace the rubber O ring if it leaks when filling it... you can run it a few days or longer like that it wont hurt. If it runs cool replace with a new thermostat from SUBARU and replace the cracked radiator with a good aftermarket ( I use Modine )
Check your fans to see if they are working.. It is easy to check the AC fan .... just turn on your AC and the fans should start running
