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.
