Where should I put the ballast? (it is getting so hot)
    #621015 - 05/01/12 03:44 PM (5 years, 4 months ago)

Is it ok to have it sitting on a table mat of cork?

Thanks for the help.

That would be fine.  I get small 4" desk fans and aim them towards the ballast to help keep the temps down.

If you are using more than 1, you could just put a shelf on the wall with some screws, the closest from the top, i've always liked to do it, and keeps the rule of elect. stuff +1m from the floor and water below that.

smash two aluminum cans flat. Set it on those. aluminum is a great heat sink.
