Chiller recommendation

It looks like I may have to purchase a chiller for my aquarium. I ran my Coralife Aqualight Pro lights today for 12 hours, and the temperature climbed to 84 degrees. I have a clip on fan blowing in the sump, and of course, the light fixture comes with 2 fans, but they are not cooling things adequately. Unless someone has a suggestion that will solve my heat problem, it looks like I will have to purchase a chiller. Does anyone have any chiller recommendations that will not bankrupt me? Also, any pros and cons with regards to inline models versus drop-in models? Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


Currently under construction:
90 Gallon SWFOWLR
Marineland Sedona stand and canopy
80 pounds of aragonite sand, 20 pounds live sand
MagDrive 7 pump
SeaLife protein skimmer
VisiTherm 250Watt heater

List of possible fish:
2 Ocellaris Clownfish
1 Royal Gramma Basslet
3 Neon Blue Gobies
1 Yellow Eye Tang
Several Blue Reef Chromis

hard to bet the pacific coast line of chillers. I have never had a complaint on one yet. Plus the factory stands behind there stuff real well! A 1/10 hp model is $339 and the mag 7 to run it is under $60. The drop in models can get coil freeze so i do not recomend them or sell them to any one.
