Do you need a air cooled reflector for a 600 watt hps?

And what do you have for an exhaust fan? From my experience (I run a 600w), I could not keep temps in range without and air cooled hood. I think that unless your setup is in a cool basement and you have a good extraction fan, air cooled is almost necessary when running 600w in a small area. Put a thermometer right at the canopy and measure the temp there.
