High end IT Pro workstation build- Opinions? (i7-4770k, 32GB DDR3, etc)

Hey all, I recently got my new "super-build" system all tuned up and finished and I was wanting some expert thoughts on it! I would really appreciate any feedback that y'all can provide :) . This ended up coming in at just under $1600 and as you can imagine it blows through everything I do. I own an IT service & consulting business and this baby easily runs 4-5 VMs w/ VMware Workstation (or Hyper-V for that matter) without breaking a sweat.

I've always used NovaBench to do general performance tests, does anyone else have a better idea? Thanks!
