Great job, did you incorporate any fans or is it not needed?
I have a temp controller running in my tank (see tank thread) want to run one probe back to light and maybe 2 small 12v fans that I can control, for now just running like this its cool to the touch with the 3 plates

Can't afford me, plus lets be honest its a version 2, my version 1 did not work out as planned rushed into it without taking the heating into consideration, maybe there is a version 3 in the pipeline

You can order a w1290 circuit on ebay. It has the control buttons, small screen andd probe. You can regulate the fans with it. Works on 12v, all you add is the pc fans and relays. Cool build. Ive also purchased leds from improved living, and built two setups. One is all 3w, and other is mixed 10w white with 4x3w blue surrounding each mix lamp. All cintrolled by a tc420. Simulates sunrise, sunset and moonlight
