    I put the far reds in a previous aluminium bar I had with the Veros... But underdrived 3 watts leds..that only are on about 10 minutes a day will not need a big heat sink...a little metal piece will work as a heat sink perfectly

    You mean these Cree’s right here :mrgreen: all cheap china LED’s that I have are just being used as spare parts lol. I meant using the far reds from the platinum led if it has them

    Lol , the good ol Platinum.....
    I used to have three. P150, P300 and P450.
    I hacked the p300 and put a Growgreen board on heatsink and gave the 450 to a mate for veg.
    I've used the P150 In the flower area in both veg mode and flower mode , inbetween the CXBs , Citis and QBs
    I think it's about 45 wall watts on flower mode.
    I didn't use it for a far red initiator though. I believe there might be more than red, far red, ir in the flower mode of the platinum.

    I have a P300 & lol it does give you a good chuckle thinking about platinum in hindsight doesnt it? I didnt check the specs on the far reds in them but im just trying to pimp these spare parts best I can. Its too loud & hot for me now in comparison to Cree setup. I do want to use the heat sink for something.

    I stand corrected.
    I just plugged the p150 in.
    It's 40 wall watts of reds only .
    I stuck it in middle of the plants overhead when I use it. On 12 hours, maybe it excites the Emerson Effect that way and maybe put it on a separate timer for 12hr 20min to summon the EOD - End of Day go to sleep quicker effect

    I've used a few of those no mark drivers from the cheapo leds I've had over the years.
    They run 2 x cxbs at around 50 watts, 2 or 3 1212s at 50 watts, a qb at I can't remember off hand and 3 to 5 10 watt Epileds. I salvage all sorts lol.

    Thats a good idea with the timer. This is all for the tent not pictured though I will get some xp-e’s from rapid & use those spare drives on them. Im new to diy LED’s but its pretty fun! Thanks for your input!
