My datacenter do not allow open rigs, so I have to used closed mining rigs, the main issue is the heat inside the enclosure.  What is the most effective way to cool this?

With a closed case rig that is air cooled there is really only one thing you should worry about, turbulence. You can have 20 fans in your rig but if they don't work together then you just wasted $200 on fans and degraded yours gpus god knows how far. A lot of people tend to think the more air they get into their box the better but with all those fans working against each other, you are just circulating hot air inside of your machine. Be aware of where you want the air to come in, where you want it to pass through and where you want it to exit.
When you put an intake fan on the front of the box, you need an equal fan exiting that same amount or more on the back to 'clean' the dirty hot air from the case. Think about it, you have X amount coming in absorbing H heat and Y amount coming out. If X is less than or equal to Y the there is always H left behind and will continue to build until you reach the system plateau and level off at an operational temperature.
There are numerous guides on the web about air turbulence in cases but your best bet is to do it yourself because our setups are completely diferent from anything most people have ever seen or dealt with.

Your best bet will probably be aqua, but it's extremely expensive.

How to cool yourself when you're hot?

This new generation is a disgrace to human race. If our ancestors have built a pyramid then its reasonable to expect one knows how to cool themselves when they're hot.

I agree. Either put the box in a tub of water, or if the data centre won't let you do that then just make sure they turn the air con down to 18C. Both of these methods work when I'm hot. I left out giving the box an ice cold coke or a cold shower for obvious reasons.

Tip,

The goal is to merge the cards with the case,

The input and output air of the card must not recirculate inside the case.

Mostly all cases must be heavily modded to accomplish this, to the point were you're almost better off building one from scratch.

Duct tape is your best friend.
