12W LEDs?????

I played around with 5Watt LED's and those were hard to keep working properly as they went into thermal runaway and eventually died. LED's generate a ton of heat and it needs to be cooled properly. Once they go past their operating temperature (I think somewhere around 180F) they start failing and their life drops off exponentially. IMO I'd be careful with these.
