I have a sunsystem 150watt , it raises the temps in my 900 cubic feet room by 10 degree F over 12 hours (80f morning, 90f night). How do you guys burn those 1000watt bulbs man! I'll graduate to a bigger bulb soon I figure but gotta learn how to control the temps on even this 150watt

Venting and exhaust is a HUGE issue. There are cool tubes, air cooled lights, passive intake from cool air and exhausting outside, even using air conditioners, and much more. Search and read is all I can say dude. The issue is way to big to put in one post.

But basically you need an intake of fresh air and an exhaust. You need negative pressure in the cab, tent, room, or what have you. At the very least a fan on the girls.

Welcome to growing your own. The rewards are boundless.

I figured to deal with the heat it would be better to contain the plants in a grow tent, but can't afford one of those. I just picked up some 7 feet high 1950 wood closet that could fit two large men inside. Painted the inside flat white and sealed up the cracks with caulking. Put a 4" diameter hole in the ceiling of it, and a ducting wall connector for the future vortex fan and carbon filter. Gonna blast that heat out the window. In the winter I'll drop the ducting to the floor for bonus heat lol

I'm shocked by how close you can put a 150W winged reflector above the plant, looks like 6"-12"? What's the temps?

If you look in the ICMAG'S OFFICIAL ~DIY~ LINK-O-RAMA
you can find threads on DIY cooltube's, (I made the bake a round from those instructions there). And I think there is a thread to make your ballast remote too. To search, it's a little easier to google the things you want and follow it with icmag, the boards search option isn't that good.But all the info you need is right here.

I've had to remove my 150w HPS from my cab. The heat was just too much, always 90 -95 F
My plant suffered heat damage, all the fans went crisp yellow along with some sugarleaves and lost a good two handful of leaves in flower.. damn. Whats funny is I didn't notice till it was getting really bad! The yellow light of an HPS hides yellowing leaves.

I put back my 125watt cfl i was using in veg, its one of those giant cfl bulbs with a ballast on it and have 4 23w cfl hanging the left and right off the plant.

Have to buy a inline vortex fan with a few hundred cfm and probably a carbon filter with it to boot. But thats gonna be another 250 dollars.
