    Fair enough. I have sort of read about cmh. I wasn't sure if you could air cool the cmh lamp because I thought it was a slightly different envelope and you changed spectrum by cooling it. Honestly cheapest option for me would be to pick up a couple 315 ballasts and mogul adapters and run my current cool tube and reflector. I'm thinking that may be the route to get through summer and save up for some leds at some point later this year or early next. I wouldn't mind waiting for diy bits to come toarket on the qb setups. Or at least some more reasonably priced options for pcb etc

    If you can get them cheap it works out to like a buck twenty five a watt. Not too bad. I've paid up to $6 a watt on certain led.

    I could handle buck twenty five a watt. I priced out some 1818 and they weren't terrible either.

    I'm looking at assembled and tested lights , it looks like $743 is as cheap as it gets for an hlg600 .

    They are so easy to assemble. But your money.

    I suppose it would be about 100 bux but then it wouldn't be a one click order. I was told the 304s are made in china and inferior to the 288s that are made here.Don't know if that's true or not but the emitters were still made in the same place I'd assume.

    Same samsung lm561c I believe. That's like 200 savings if you're paying 730.

    I'm right at like 600 without any miscellaneous and shipping which probably amounts to nothing major. 743 covers everything I would order in an assembled and tested light with dimming potentiometer installed.

    Going on a bit of a nastalgia thing this afternoon. I managed to find my original account but can't access it as the Yahoo account is long gone. Shame. However at 19 and 20 I was considerably more of a little shit than I am now.

    Indeed. Any more thought on your search for qb? I was reading where some dudes were getting strips from AliExpress as samples that ran the second diode. Something about them having inline resistors though which is an issue when running so many

    Still waiting on an hlg 600. Not sure how growerslight is on shipping , a friend ordered directly from hlg and had his stuff in a few days. I have no opinion of these boards at this time and am relying on what friends have said. Waiting for a deformed jet fuel v2 to finish up then I'll be hanging the chps , will leave a spot for the hlg 600 to hang right next to it for a side by side. Haven't even figured out which strains but I'm leaning towards 303 biochem and biodiesel.

    Nice. I'm jumping in on the cookies craze a little late and about to pop some sour dosidos. Mango skunk finishes up this week or early next. At 10 weeks tomorrow

    I need to update my seed collection , looks like 303 may not be back. I've looked at a lot of packs and have no idea what's what. Seems to be a lot of new names popping up.

    Yeah I only grabbed dosidos because I saw some sour lemonade from the same breeder that looked fire. I was flipping through attitude just to see what was what and it's crazy what they have now. Basically a million and one flavirs of kush. And what kush is depends on who you ask now a days. Wouldn't mind throwing some NYC diesel down myself soon. Maybe if the coco dtw side stuff works out easy enough I will

    That'll at least be a good excuse to get some cob kit parts
