fan for cooling T5 lighting?


Premium Member
I have a 6x54 T5 light and need to know what kind of fans people use for cooling? I saw a couple of clamp on dual fans. Would these work ? Thanks !

There's no reason why a couple of clamp-on fans wouldn't be sufficient. If you have the lights under a canopy, the clamp-on fans may not fit. Many people use PC fans (fans that are used inside computers) as they are cheap and readily available.

I installed four 80mm PC fans on the sides of my canopy and they work well to keep my overdriven T5HOs cool.

I second PC fans, Just use an transformer from like a old phone charger or something, to convert the power.
