The Mostly Modest Moderately Priced Zen Rig

I couldn't wait for Zen to come out so I could replace my old Trinity system, until Trinity died in January. I had to Frankenstein something workable with my wife's old FX-6300 rig.

 

This build is actually from back in March, but I've had two RMAs since then and work has been a little busy! It's finally back online - a big shoutout to staggeredsix for helping me out: he debugged the last blowout, put TMMMPZR back together, tamed the cables, and provided me with a loaner machine while the RMA process went through!

It was already named the Paw Power Rig (and it's a better name).
