Thanks for all the help I think once I get the money il go down to 400 or even 250  I can’t stand the heat but at least I don’t have to put the gas on anymore ! 

Could you take it off the reflector and hang the light vertically for now. That will bounce the light around more evenly and lessen the direct heat a bit.

When you get a couple a grows done give diyleduk a shout if you fancy led and I would image no more than 250 watts strip kit would cover you and give a really good yield, no hotspots from the lights and an even coverage of the canopy. Not much else will give you that.

 

Toke...

My fan is powerful enough it’s just the 600w are the hottest lights by far per lumens even the 1000 watts like The same temp

Have you thought about getting a air cooled reflector get a reducer from 5” down to 4” might help lower your tempts a few degrees without spending a wedge of cash
