Default Optimus Primo

Disclaimer 1: This is my first actual build log so please bear with me. I know starting a build log without a single picture is frowned upon so I will try and get some up ASAP.

Disclaimer 2: Although the reference to Optimus Prime this is NOT a Transformers inspired build. It's my version of a play on words for the "main character" of this build, Mr. Enthoo Primo.

Disclaimer 3: I am in no way experienced with photography and all the photos taken won't be with a DSLR or even a point-and-shoot. Nope they will be taken with my BlackBerry Z30. I will do my best to take good pictures.

A lot of the parts I already have and currently running with in the system. However, I will be doing a full tear down and once all new parts arrive I will begin this build. Below is what I will end up with using my existing parts and new parts when completed.
