I'm building a set up for a friend, i should of had it done a while ago but i been slacking so much. I'm going to buy cabinets from homedepot, instead of building a room so it will be somewhat portable incase something comse up and it needs to be moved asap.

There will be two cabinets (one for moms/clones and one for flowering). Will be using a 400 watt HPS(open reflector, not air cooled) for flowering and CFLs for the moms/clones.

Right now i'm worried about the flowering cabinet. I still haven't figured out which one i want. The first one i was looking at is 35WX18DX75H.

But i found one thats 71 3/4 in. High x 48 in. Wide x 20 1/2 in. Deep. And its $60 cheaper.

So my question is, if i use one of these cabinets what kind of fan will i need? Can i still use pc fans or do i need them expense big ones?

I've never used anything bigger than a pc fan. I don't know much about venting and odor control, i never worried about it but my friend is. I was planning on making a carbon filter. But if i have to use a big fan i think i'm going to buy one with a filter.

Also i'm looking at a cabinet for mom/clones, its 34-3/4 In. High x 24 In. Wide x 15 1/4 In. Deep. Think thats big enough?

Heres pics of the cabinets.

I found a tube at http://www.specialty...com/904317.html that i could prob use for my 400. But i was planning on moving up to a 600watt, so i prob shouldn't waste my money upgrading my 400. Its just a idea.

also what do you guys think of this Digital Humidity Gauge?

considering how enclosed that area is and how that wattage is the same thing as mr.green's from "i grow chronic" im gonna suggest that you get what he got and get a squirrel cage fan and rig that shit up to a carbon filter
