wow very impressive
^well thats not mine and its impressive, I know. But his fixture and thread was the reason I could take the plunge.
Thank you, and glad to be of assistance.
Haha you have no idea, evolved! I got a question tho, do you turn the fans on all the time? Whats the temp in the room? I know youre in AZ and Im in MT, but just curious.
That looks pretty fun!!
Sure it was! Its even more fun to get to play with the dimmers
Yes, I run my fans the whole time the LEDs are on. They use the same timer as the blues.
I keep the AC at 77 during the summer, but I don't know what the exact temperature of the room is, likely 76-77. When I had MHs, the room would heat up a whole lot, so by comparison, I don't notice any heat at all with the LEDs. Curious as to why you ask?
I asked because I havent installed the fan on it yet, the heatsink is never even warm. I havent been running the fixture w/max power yet, so... Never owned a MH, so I cant compare, I would only imagine how hot it gets! I am very surprised (and happy) how cool the LED runs. (The house is like 70F at the most at all times. )
