4 bulbs that sounds pretty good. It will be just a touch past "white" but not quite blue either....maybe just shy of a 14k bulb.

Personally, i'd go with the first. In some of the t5 posts on lighting that seems to be the norm....

Personally, I would add a GE 65K to the mix. It's a whiter / yellower light when going full blast, but I only run mine 5 hours a day letting the bluer light dominate the rest of the time but my growth is fabulous.

i ended up going with the bulb configured as above. the fixture is the T-5 HO 24" from hellolights.
