If you can deal with the extra noise and extra electricity cost, I would go with the T9.
The sick R4 is in a DC with my S9 so noise isn't an issue in this case.  Just another expensive shipping payment and then mining delay, what fun!!

Whoah, I almost lost other hash board today in my R4, batch 4.  Sad
It disappeared completely, only the board connected to J7 was visible at the status page.
Turned out that changing communication cable in the controller from J8 to J6 helped, at least that got it running ok again.

I inspected my R4B1 today.
I find some DC plug  who overheated from too much current.
I use a EVGA G2 1300W with good sized cables.
It was running at stock speed 600Mhz. Down clocked to 550Mhz to be safe.

POoooOOOooor design, Bitmain can't size a DC plug properly ...

Well after much delay my sick droid R4B4 is back at the Empire for scrapping.  After some polite back and forth regarding the issues with the R4 I was promised "just this one time" an S9, instead of a T9, for swap once returned on my dime.  It (R4B4) has just arrived today.

We'll see...! Once an S9 arrives to the mines at Hoth then I'll be fully convinced; but they did promise such and I will take them at their word.

@VRobb,

as always, our hosting option, you do not have to worry about dead units or broken units as it be repaired or replaced at site if it is damaged or broken while in our hosting!  Fully protected option is $60/kw, string attached is shipout is only after unit is not profitable to hash.  (hash to the ash option, and probably in those senario, hosting fee at that time may be even lower to hash a bit longer by migrating to lower grade hosting option we have to keep the unit working longer)

talk to me I am getting upset at 2 months of time of my r4 being away from me.

I am poor, but i do work for Coin Smiley

That's bad, sorry to hear  Undecided
Have you been kicking their butts via e-mail or phone to do the repair ready already?

Well I did get a blown S7 in here to fix at Lightfoot labs, so I am learning these things. Once I get the board running I'll post results and thoughts in a thread. I can almost always do turnaround in a few days, never months :-)

It took a bit more back and forth, and referencing the original emails with the offer of an S9 this one time, but it is now official: I will be getting a new S9 in swap for my 1/2 running R4B4.  Of course there's a catch...  No stock available until, get this, October!!  Shocked
Update to come in September sometime.  Undecided
Until then, $$ and hashrate wasting away.  Tongue

October? That kinda sucks... If you live stateside you should be able to send it to their USA based repair facility in California for expedited repair.

Well they didn't handle it well then after all.  Undecided
They can't put warranty orders in the same basket with new orders, that is not fair at all.

Yeah, well you pays your money and you takes your chances.  Now that they got it I will must wait.  Hopefully not the full amount of time!

Things are looking up!  Got an email this morning from Sarah at bitmain letting me know my S9-11THs is ready to ship!  I was hoping it might happen sooner than planned, and it did.  Grin
Now if only there's some open capacity at the Hoth mines I'll be even happier!  Cheesy

And to keep this on-topic, my R4B2 is still chugging away just great.  My favorite miner I've had by far, not that I've had so many tho...

....and we're back in delay mode!  Tongue  Suddenly the S9 they had ready to ship turned into a T9, which is the wrong unit, and so the wait continues.  I thought they came back with good news a little too fast!  Cheesy

Consider R4B4 only hashed full power for a few days to a week at most, ran at 1/2 power for a month or so before being unplugged to ship back in May, delay in getting shipped for a month or so, and after sitting at Bitmain for quite a while now I still wait...  Not cool at all.

So for all of you who still want an R4 for its quietness and efficiency, which is great if you get it, it's a 50/50 crapshoot as far as I can tell.

wow that sucks, at this rate you would probably make more if you just had bitmain return your bitcoin.. since its almost 5000$ now.. it was only around 2300 when these came out?

Yeah, well, much like Vegas don't play with money you can't afford to lose.  Not that I expect to lose anything, it's just not doing very much at the moment!  Cheesy

Ja. Thass why I left Gimpy just running with the dead board unplugged when the board went titsup after just 25hrs. Wasn't about to send to China under Warranty and BitmainWarrenty in Co was having issues getting whatever for Paid repair/replacement.

Oh well, ja is down ~4.2THs  but just minor dip in the farm total, I'll live with it. Love my other 2 R4's tho, are perfect and like the majority of the Bitmain miners I have no surprises so far.
