Nice!

theDoogan, you could also hang it from your stand. I think one of the TOTM entries in the last few months had a setup that mounted to the back of the stand and hung the fixture from that. Saves you having to put holes in your ceiling.

I ended up hanging it. Im very happy with how it turned out. Not a bad light on a college budget.

I just noticed, did you end up not needing the fan?

I took it off for that picture because my temp fan is ugly. Its a small processor fan running on 12V rightnow untill I get a new aluminum case fan. The heatsink will probably stay cool without it though. Its pretty big and the LEDs are still not running near full yet. Just incase.
