I have 2 R4 in my basement with the window open, the temp outside now is approx 15 degrees. The temperature in my basement is like 36 degrees.

Any tips on cooling?

Extractor fan. I use an inline 5inch fan (that's usually for hydroponics), with some ducting to draw the hot air away and out the window.

In your case dependant on room size an open air fan behind the miners blowing the hot air towards the window might work.

On a different note. How are you finding the R4 in terms of reliability?

Thanks!

I have never had miners at home, i have them hosted up north so my experience is very low. However, I overclocked at 650 which give approx 9.2th/s, they are silent and are reliable since i have been running them.

You could use a small inline fan like I use if you build some sort of enclosure for the exhaust end with a 5inch diameter opening. Hook the ducting straight upto the enclosure and direct out the window. Could probably even build it out of some decent cardboard and tape if you're worried about cost.

I'm thinking of buying an R4 but concerned about reliability considering the numerous failures that have plagued the S9

I think your goal is to pump all the hot air from miners out and get some cool air from window directly to them.
Btw what are the board and chip temperature ?
