New Build

Well, after more than one setback, its done. The first mobo arrived DOA..and at that point I was determined to build over the weekend. The next one I bought from Frys was an Asus P6t deluxe, which I kept over night. aftrer sleeping on it, I decided that spending close to $300 on a mobo was only going to result in a $1000 BUILD.
I came across a MSI P58 that was for sale by an individual that came with aQuad Core i7 860, 4Gb Corsair XMS3 modules(I bought another 4Gb matched to add to it),
Added a Diamond Radeon 5770 HD that its a MONSTER. I lit the tires on the Dell Quad just to see what it had. I couldnt imagine having it in Xfire!
Anyway, put it all at home in a new Antec case with 4 120mm fans in a push pull setup. and seeing how that tiny card was already red, I decided to go with it and red out the interior.
Here she is...

I would have done a couple of things differently, but you don't want to hear that. Overall, looks like a great rig. I assume that massive block in the center is your CPU cooler...right? What brand/type is it?

Its a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus, and please share. To be honest, I wish I'd stayed with the Asus mobo...BTW, did I mention this was my first NEW build.

Not too much, I just have a strong prejudice against MSI motherboards, and while I do like Antec cases, I prefer a case with better cooling and with toolless drivebays. My HAF922 has better cooling than my Antec SX1040BII, but the Antec is stronger built. If that MSI motherboard stands up for you, I think that you got a very good rig.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 on to Build 7601?
Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
