    My current SLIK F730 has a nasty habit of drooping no matter how much I tighten the head. And no, I currently do not have any super gigantic cameras or lenses, just my 70D with a grip and a Tamron 70-300 VC and Canon 15-85 IS USM. I just need the tripod to be steady. And since I needed a new...

    I know it's expensive, but as far as I am concerned, I am always happier to have and not need than to need and not have. So I tend to spend a little extra to get something better that the run of the mill: The tripod I already have, the SLIK F730 (2.7K), like all mass market tripods, is a flimsy...

    This new version has several differences from the old one: 1. No Macro 2. Better optics 3. Better construction 4. VC - most important. I have been using it only a couple of hours and already I like the feel of it. Feels very solidly built, and the zoom ring feels just tight enough. There is no...

    As to lenses, I already have the EF-S 15-85 f/3.5-5.6 and the EF-S 55-250 IS II. I actually started out planning to get the 70D body only. The reason I changed plans to the 19-55 kit is that I wanted to try out the STM lens as a video lens. In that respect, I really wanted the 18-135 IS STM...

    The first pic is the original setup. Last cleaning was about 6 months ago. I take the thing apart and clean about every 6 months. The final pic looks dusty because of the reflection from the flash. Unlike a routine cleaning, this time we literally took the HAF-X apart, detaching everything...

    @gollum:The fans are 120mm, just like the one that comes with the Evo.@Amjath:I retained the GTX470. Not much of a gamer. This will do for now. GPU upgrade is next project, once I have recovered from this. :)

    The Hyper 212 Evo comes with only one (non-LED) fan. I bought the 2 Coolermaster XtraFlo fans separately and attached them i n place of the original fan. What think you?

    I already have an HAF-X that housed my old system. I also have the Zotac GTX470 from the old system. These two items plus the Dell SP2208WFP monitor, the Logitech G100 keyboard and the Logitech G500 mouse are being retained with the new/upgraded build. Also the DVD/RW drives. Oh yes, before I...
