    Never had any problems, I cut my intake holes in the base, when lights are on there is a little bit of light leakage out. Daylight doesn't reflect in. Also it works great as a intake filter, no dust or bugs get in, the only downside is that I have to vacuum them clean at the end of every grow or you could replace them it's cheap enough, I get mine from £1 store but you only get 1 sheet.

    What i did was at walmart they have a 3 bulb vanity light. I got it for like 10 bucks. It has a nice reflective box that came with it but i didnt have room in my case for it.

    Oh yeah, I was just at Walmart the other day, but I still dont know enough about LED to commit to buying lol. I found this 125w CFL light on amazon for about 40$ not sure if the socket size differs from the regular light sockets though :/

    Go led trust me you won't regret it. The buds are so much denser with led not airy like CFL. I'm 6 weeks into flower with this new led rig and my buds are dense and getting frosty.

    I don't know, I haven't tried flowering with them. I use 3 for early veg and 6 for advanced/aggressive veg :)
    I also use 1 for clones but have them off to the side in the indirect light until they've rooted and start growing.

    I have (2) 4 bulb vanity I was guna use b4, but was curious on the idea of the strip lighting on Amazon. I built a light that maxes at 165watts, and used 20feet of 5630 led strip. Man I was super bored so I ended up making a light from scratch for about 60 bucks 20170702_122933.jpg 20170808_192140-1.jpg

    You could buy 2 Y-shaped dual sockets for $2.85 each. They screw into your main sockets and allows for 2 bulbs per socket.
    You're definitely gonna want more light intensity. I would suggest using four 6500k bulbs for your veg cycle, and then later on, use four 2700K bulbs for your flowering cycle. Or, you could mix and match while in the veg stage, then go full on 2700K bulbs when pistils start to appear.

    just a current update guys, i had to cull these guys. i failed on this, and will go again. i over watered, under watered, had crappy soil, and maybe even some nute burn trying to save them in the end. i might could have saved one, but it was only like an inch tall and putting up hairs. i decided to can it. i will run the pc box again when i get another pc fan. i had to scrap one of them for a diy humidifier for my armiore. i had some pics, but i guess i deleted them... ill have it back online before long though
