I'd probably be better off giving up on this specific mystery neck I bought off CL as part of a failed partscaster build.....anyway... No photos - but in order to get a decent, playabale string height, I've had to raise the saddles on this strat quite a bit - not all the way, but there's only a few turns probably left before they'll be raised as much as possible. Go ahead and suggest nut height and neck relief - maybe that's the issue, but I don't thiink so - I've checked and adjusted both to where they look right. Could it be the neck angle? Would a shim at the headstock end of the neck pocket potentially be something worth trying? I've avoided shims up to now - having read they can mess with energy transfer between the neck and body? Is that true, or another one of those things that seem plausible, but you can't really hear?
