Yeah man looks good for the price, there are wider hoods but will cost a chunk more cash.Hi guys.
Honestly cheers for all the advice and knowledge of your set ups. All I seem to have done past few days is research, test and troubleshoot and watch bloody YouTube videos!!! Lol.
Reiterate a little more here, yes I am in the UK as @jondamon points out and no you didn't sound like a dick mate! All input is good input!!
Final set up (hopefully)
I agonized over what to do with regards to an a/c or an air cooled hood as can only afford one just now and I think an air cooled hood is the best way forward. Checking air-cons online last night and even the expensive are pretty loud, the quietest I can find is 65db which is as loud as a Hoover running!!
Decided on purchasing an air-cooled hood instead.... @coreywebster what's your opinion on this?

If that's ok then I'm going to buy it tomorrow, will take a few days to arrive but I'm sure I'll find something else to sort.
Honestly folks cheers for the direction and all your opinions.
If you look through enough hoods you will see some clearly have gaps at every join which is an issue, though not hard to resolve with a bit of tape.
Black orchids stuff is mostly a little bit better quality than some of the other budget makes.
I would check all glass seals for leaks if you plan on sucking through it, that way you don't pull unfiltered air through gaps and have any stink leaking.
