Looking for the nice blue tint look...(PC)

Someone recently started a thread on how to get a blue-ish tint using MH light and people suggested going 14k. I have 4x65w PC lighting. Right now I've got 2 Actinics and 2 10K running. The light looks fine but I do like the blue tint of MH. Is there any way to replicate that with PC? Would running 2 Actinics and 2 50/50s be overkill? Would I run into any issues running that much actinic?

Anyone try this? I'm thinking that might be a little TOO blue.

Try swapping 1 of the 10k's for a 50/50 first. That way you'll only be losing 1 white light and adding 1 blue light instead of 2 and 2. If it's not blue enough, swap the other 10k. Of course if all your bulbs are old, new one's might be in order. Everything gets all yellowish after a while.
