My case/CPU temperature seems to be OK but pushing all the heat from the case makes my room noticeably warmer than the rest of the house. Is there any cooling solution that will help prevent this. I know the heat has to go somewhere...

Yes: Open a window if the outside temperature is lower, or install air conditioning.

Alternatively, look into a watercooling solution in which the radiator is placed outside the building. would be a good place to start, as they have quite a good section on watercooling. I had an idea to install an old hot water tank and use the waste heat from my PCs to pre-heat the house hot water using watercooling kit, recovering a bit of the energy. Sadly, it got what can only be described as a frosty reception from my girlfriend. So I still use the window as required.

I have 4 PCs in one room, so I know how you feel. The room is nice and toasty throughout our miserable UK winters without any additional heating, but way too warm in what passes for summer.
