Here's a pic. Not the sexiest brain, but since no one would ever buy him, I though it'd do well with me and it has.

Thanks... My disclaimer is... Indie keep it under 4 T5's and it did fine, but under LED's it is much better.

Yeah I want LEDs but am stuck on which unit to invest in. I have a standard 55 and want something that will last and be best for a good price.
