Well... please dont start a flame war :(

Back to your SYN_SENT problem, I suppose the remote IP is known, so you
probably could post here the result of a tcdpump ?

tcpdump -p -n -s 1600 host IP_of_problematic_peer -c 500

Most probably remote peer received too many attempts from you, and a
anti DOS mechanism is droping all SYN packets.

Ah well... I remember now that you mentioned tcp_sack setting had an
effect, so forget the "Most probably..." and give some tcpdump traces :)
