The Solar Closet (400 watt Solarstorm)
Received my Solarstorm 400 earlier today. Thank you CLW for the GFP. The light is exactly what I expected. Very solid piece of equipment. I was actually extremely surprised with how quiet the thing runs. I'll be throwing in a few clones in the next couple days. Most likely going to SCROG it. Any feedback would be awesome.
I'm thinking of upgrading to the S & P TD-150xs (silent series) fan. The 165cfm fan I have now is connected to a speed controller, and there is a suttle humming sound when the speed controller is less than 75%.
I'll also be adding a 10-12inch Fan at the bottom blowing air straight up from the passive intake. Should help with stem strength as well as better air flow.

Congrats on the new panel, zippy. I was going to jump on the GFP program as well but the reduction of the warranty to 2 years and the weird stuff with their journals on their forum made me step back a bit. Either way I am super interested in seeing a full run with the solarstorm 400 and will tagging along for the ride.

Im in for this. Love me some california lightworks panels, the 400 is the sweet size I think. How big is your tent?

This is my first LED grow. I've only been growing with a 250 watt HPS before, as well as outdoor. The Solarstorm is definitely heavy - around 20 lbs. or so. And it gives off way less heat than my 250 HPS. As for sound, when I first plugged the thing in, I wasn't even sure if the fans we're running, that's how quite it was.

Transplanted (2) Blueberry Sour Diesel clones into 3-gallon geopots.
Using Fox Farm Ocean Forest for medium.
I wanted to stick with 2 of the same clones so I can experiment with nutes, as well as making the canopy as even as possible.

sub'd. im looking at purchasing a solar storm too.
Check California Light Works website for their "Growers Feedback Program". I got this lamp at almost half price, with the option of returning it after 90 days.
