Default New Build Complete: Thank You!!!

I want to say thank you to everyone on tech-forums that helped me with picking my parts and giving me advice on my new build; it is much appreciated!

So here it is, with some comments on each part.

CM Haf 932- Amazing case, not nearly as quiet as the Antec P182, but definately better cooling, and great for cable management. 9/10. Not 10/10 because doesn't come with dust filters. Anybody know where I can buy dust filters for this case?

Asus Maximus 3 Formula- Tough to say, haven't OC'd my system yet, X-Fi Creative sound card is pretty good; but will post when I get some benchmarks done.

Intel i7-860- Compared to my Core2Duo E6400, it's night and day; but waiting on OC to determine.

Venomous X Heatsink w/ Scythe S-Flex 1900rpm- Haven't OC'd, and waiting for my Scythe Kaze Master Ace to control fan speed on S-Flex fan; but the Venomous X w/ S-Flex is currently idling my system at 15C...... will post more when I OC and run benchmarks/Prime/etc. Will also add another fan for "Pull" in the future, depending on temps.

Corsair Dominator GT DDR3 1600 7-7-7-20- It matched the color of my mobo . Will post after I do some tweaking, to see if they were worth the money.

Intel X25-M 80GB G2- For my O/S, programs, Games; I will NEVER go back to Hard Drives. That should say it all.

1TB Seagate 7200.12- Used as storage drive.

LG GH24NS50- Fast, but noisy when in use.

Asus 5770- Was gonna get the 5870 and another one down the road, but decided to get this for now, as the 300 series will be out soon. Also, this card is more than sufficient for the games I play right now (Starcraft, CS-Source).

Corsair HX750- 1st time using a modular power supply; and I will always be using modular from now on.

Windows 7 32-bit- Why not 64?.......... for my favourite game of all time, Starcraft, LOL.

Once again, Thank You to everyone at Tech-Forums who helped; I will post some results in the near future.
