I really don't think it could be said any better than what beast wrote. ultimately you would be better off going with leds. if your room stays between 70-75 and your tank is that high, either you've got a faulty heater (stuck on) or your metal halides are simply cooking the water.

What's the water temp with the halides off for a couple days? Since it's cycling, having the lights off won't hurt anything. Doing this will at least let you know for sure it's the lights and not a heater or pump running hot. Don't want you wasting money if you don't have to.

Unplug the heater for a day and check your temperature. If its a faulty heater then problem solved. If the heater is the problem get some LED'S anyway.

Id try a cooling fan, those work miracles. I brought my 100 down from 84 to 80 in a day with 1 over my sump. The prob is that they evaporate water like crazy!
