Default Irish Moss question

When using Irish moss, are there any other steps to take to make your beer clear?

Crash cooling, finings, gelatin and filtering are all options.

In the boil:

1. Irish Moss
2. Finings

In the secondary:

1. Crash cooling
2. Gelatin
3. Polyclar
4. Time

Pre- or At-bottling time: Gelatin (although I do not recommend it as it can be inadvertently drunk with your brew...YECH!!!))

Don't forget a rapid cold break. I made an immersion chiller out of 33' of copper tubing that gets my wort (full boils) down to 70F in 8-9 minutes.
