Bowens XE400 / D-Lite RX 4/4 - How do they handle overheating? 5k shots per day.

Quick background. I do one-off studio shoots where we need a high volume of simple shots.

About 4.5k shots in 8 hours. And not evenly spread out once outfit changes are factored in. That does allow the lights to have 10minute breaks.

Studio we use has Bowens Gemini 500R, on about half power, we do lose one to overheating a couple of time a shoot and have to take a short break.

We're looking to do our own set up and looking at kits using either

Bowens XE400 or D-Lite RX 4/4

In terms of overheating would these offer about the same performance? We don't need better, but we can't live with worse at we can't afford to sit around due to an overheating strobe.

Any insights welcome.
