With lighting you will not get an increase in intensity from varying bulb manufactures unless you change the bulb type itself. The best you can really hope for is bulb quality.

On a 33 gal tank and those 3 bulbs you should still be able to keep some lower light soft corals. What I would suggest is making sure you provide the right spectrum with the bulbs available to you. I am not familar with what is available for NO lighting, but hopefully someone that does will post a better response.
