Well, thats 10degs cooler than mine lol...108 sometimes, its been thriving in that condition for about 2 weeks now, seems happy as shit in there, all perk & healthy looking. I'm wondering if the temp gage is busted lol. One thing I have noticed since I put the hps in there that got the temp up so high, I now have to water every day.

90 degrees shouldn't be fatal, but you are on the very high side of optimal.

Generally speaking, your intake should be larger than your exhaust (some say twice as big)...sounds like you have the opposite.

And yes, what are temps outside the box? More info would be helpful.
