You could open your window a bit and stick the radiator and a 120 mm fan on the window.

Hmm this seems like a good application for water cooling with a liquid to liquid radiator. I remember a thread where a guy had his radiator in a toilet tank. If you could build a system to keep a radiator submerged in a slowly refreshing pool of tap water, it would be great. The system could have a low, regulated flow of cool water and drain directly into a waste pipe after it was heated. Your cooling capacity vs. water usage could easily be controlled by a valve. The main benefit, in my opinion, would be that all of the heat energy would directed into the sewer instead of the location of the computer.

Wow that's a really good idea. Wasting some water, but would probably help keep the room cooler.

you could set up your computer by the window, make a plywood fitting for your window, and set up some sort of duct work, they make 240cm fan and duct tubing so, all in all mod your case to vent air outside your house.
Soon to be had.

if ever there as a night below 0C or 32F, the condensation would shortout something and kill his pc

Don't think that is much of a concern currently. In the winter I am sure he is fine, he's just trying to vent some really hot air now.

I sudgest building a bong and venting the top of the bong out your window...you will bring your temps down below amb. and the heat and vapor would go outside! BONG FOR THE WIN!!!! just make sure to keep an eye on the water...im using that same 55 gallong tupper container for the base of my bong.

No, because then I have to open the door, and that lets the even hotter air outside in. The door also has to remain functional. Tonight I didn't open the door until 11Pm when it had finally cooled down enough to air out the garage. I'll leave it open until it's time to hit the rack, and shut the computer off until tomorrow morning because otherwise I won't be able to sleep due to the heat. That's an every night ritual.

So far I keep hitting a brick wall every direction that I turn. I tried running a 1/2 in pipe under the roll-up door but it won't close properly. The water cooled radiator is an idea, but that still leaves me with the heated water that I can't get rid of. That's the wall that I'm running into - there's no way out for the heated water that doesn't let hot outside air in, making the whole thing a moot point. Otherwise I'd just run some pvc out the side door to a reservoir/radiator and then send it back. If the side door had a pet door my problem would be solved, but it doesn't and it never will, by decree

If I do shell out the money for the waterblocks I will set up to use the swimming pool at least once - the photo-op would just be too good to pass up.

You should put the radiator in the pool! Then you don't have to run chlorine and all that other stuff through your cpu block.

Although I don't know what that will do to your radiator...
