Virgin Egghead, First time Ribeyes

Ok everyone,
 
Salt/Pepper along with some other spices and I let it sit out for 40 mins prior to going on the grill.  I had grill around 600, 2 1/2 mins first side and 3 mins on the other.  I let it rest in foil for about 20 mins prior to cutting it.  I think I will go 3 to 3 1/2 with this size steak the next time.  The steak was great but it was a little closer to rare than med. rare.  My question for the experts:  With a ribeye, should I go lower heat for a little bit longer to let the fat break down?  Either way, I think it was great for my first steak on the BGE, I did immediately take the steak off the grill after 3 mins on second side.  Some people have said close up shop and leave it in there for a bit.  Just some thoughts and I'll be checking the board as well.  I've included a before and after pic so any constructive criticism will be gladly accepted!
