good eye! they do light up

that was hard to show/explain in a picture so I shot the video



the problem is quite obvious once a few screws were removed:





BAD contact patch = BAD heat transfer = burnt-up array

I'm quite sure once they see this pic a new array will be in the mail but I don't have confirmation on that just yet.

each part; Switch > PSU > LED are modular and have plugs on the wire ends so it will be a "plug-n-play" swap




funny how this all circles back to my PC overclocking days
I've lapped heatsinks and CPUs for better contact

I've done better but this should be just fine






this was a seed sized ball of thermal paste that was squeezed out to this size by contact / pressure .... NO WAY this is going to overheat!!!

just a heads up, when it comes to thermal paste, dont use anything that's white, use a paste called arctic silver. this is one thing i know alot about, and thats thermal paste


Its worth a Google

Building IC a new home

Bag-Seed Pot-Luck






IC a new home in my future





Bottom of a White Siberian







Top of a 4x4x4 cube
(?)






ahhh, MUCH better







I'm going to give the nute mix (3.5 gal 720ppm @ 5.5) 12 hours or so to get up to temp and aerate



that mix is hotter than I wanted but couldn't dilute anymore
been watering this with aerated, 1-1-1 +root @ 350ppm for a week+ so I think she'll be able to take it



-----------------------------------------







ok Bag-Seed Pot-Luck...

this is a bag-seed plant and I'm a total n00b...

could anyone with more experience take a wild (educated) guess @ what it is.

yes, a pot plant. I got that far myself :p

Sativa ? Indica ? 60/40 ? 80/20 ?

[oh-high-oh schwag @ 100/zip]






thank you

My guess,and it is only a guess is a hybrid Sativa Indica mix leaning to the Sativa side.

I don't know if I will be able to get that good a picture holding it by hand.
(the tube can be removed from the stand)

It may come down to cutting off a small bud-leaf and placing that on the stand.

once my lights come on (12am EST) I'll try to shoot a few pics of a living leaf but for now more FUN
(and I thought I loved my digi-cam micro setting)
