it doesn't really get that hot but just to keep it cool, and to have good circulation, i have a 4 inch fan blowing on my lights continiously, and a 4 inch in line fan taking the hot air out of my g room. regent makes 70 watt hps security lamps, and 120 watter as well. they cost 49.95 a piece, and the poney tale cable costs 5.95. you get 6,500 lumens per 70 watt lamp. 2 of them equals 13,000 lumens. that is perfect for a couple or plants. my set up has yielded me some really decent nugs. i got the hps lamp idea out of george cerventes's segment in high times. he specifically tells you about regent and thier hps security lamps. they do make a metal hailide lamp, but it gets to hot, and they don't stock it at my home depot. i'm not trying to be a smart ass at all, just trying to clarify, lady z...cool? have a good night guys. p.s love the new avatar!!(lady z)
