400w hid in a 2.5 ft x 2.5ft x 5.25ft tent. Heat issues?

  1. Thinking about getting a 400w hid with wing reflector. Have a 220cfm 4" fan and filter. I currently have 2 300w China leds about 12 inches from the plants and temps get to 81. Think it would generate too much heat in my tent if I used a 400w hid?
     
  2. Yes.

    If you want to go that route, I'd
    recommend an air cooled hood.
     
  3. Figured. Don't think I could fit an air cooled hood with the ducting in my space :(
