My review of Ironside Computers

I figured I would hold off posting to see how well my computer worked after a few months of high stress use.I find myself only giving customer reviews to items I have bad experiences with to warn people. This however is a wonderful exception.
Where to begin...where to begin.....ahhh of course the specs:(You'll to have to forgive any information I leave out, I'm not your typical tech-savvy guy)
Intel core i7 2600k
sli gtx 570
Windows 7 64 bit
Receiving it in mid-May, I setup my new rig as fast as possible. It booted up perfectly and ran smoothly, no initial errors or anything. I installed many of my games on it (WoW, Call of Duty, etc.....) and instantly was blown away by the performance. WoW (from which I recently retired) ran smoth as silk and was no match. Shogun Total War (which is a bit more taxing) ran amazing at full settings. I have not had any serious issues with this computer and can say my expectations were exceeded. Beyond performance, I must honestly say I have never encountered a company like Ironside before in terms of the phenomenal customer service and professionalism. A good friend of mine recommended Ironside to me and after weeks of hearing him rave on and on, I finally checked them out. Through the planning, building, and shipping of my computer I received unbelievable customer service. After dealing with some of the larger companies (Dell, HP) over the years, I could not believe the quality of personalized service I received. Their business model is certainly working and their desired word of mouth advertising will continue on through me. I have already recommended them to two of my friends interested in getting high performance computers. It is a real shame there are not more companies around like Ironside!There is no question in the future they will receive my repeat business!
I'll put a few links to some pics of my beauty below.

Also, I recently removed the sticker in the second pic off the front of the case (I prefer a clean case), and it left a lot of glue residue that's very hard to get off. If anyone has any advice to get it off, w/o damaging the paint/plastic I would really appreciate it.
