Cooling a led light in hood using PC fans

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I have a led light that I wish to put inside a hood. But seeing as it gets really hot just sitting on the tank I want to look at ways of cooling it and have come up with using PC fans run of a old PSU I had lying around.

now my question is what way should I place the fans, pushing air into the hood or pulling air out?

due to space restrictions I will have to mount them in the top of the hood above the light.

thanks

Edit: I should also mention that the back of the hood is open

Well here is a quick shot of the inside of the hood.

Don't worry the massive hole will be covered with a vent cover and some tidying up to do yet.

But I thought some one might enjoy a progress shot.

Which direction did you end up having the fans blow ?

I'm wanting to do something like this for my hood, gets too hot for my liking so not using hood atm
