    Built these a while ago, a decent design that works well. Bud Industries aluminum chassis are readily available on amazon and can make a safe environment for housing a home built DIY LED light.

    Here are a few mounted directly on a heatsink. A sheet of painted steel/stainless or aluminum makes it easy to attach components on top of the heatsink as well as direct airflow when using a fan. A top cover can simply be a sheet of aluminum bent at the edges and placed into the last row of fins where they can be screwed. Or another way, a electronics project box can be used to secure connections.

    Here is the simplest of them all. Just a power cord on a driver with the two driver wires run to a single large cob. Separate 12v power supply to run a fan and cool the heatsink. Just a few simple connections and you've got a great plant growing light source thats much better than most any other options available.

    This is another remote ballast light, simple and effective. Similar to the single cob light pictured above but with a longer ballast cord and a dedicated aluminum box to hold the components.
