Ok, so inspired by the use of a gear set Uberjager constructed for under 1 million gold and it's effectiveness I have devised a challenge for anyone who would like to participate. I was able to construct the following gear set for under 1 million gold:
Flawless Square Emerald - 3,920
Flawless Square Ruby (6) - 3,750
Flawless Square Amethyst - 368
Mainhand Demonic Gavel - 250,000

Shoulders Cavalry Tooth - 1,835
Bracers Lacuni Prowlers - 60,000
Pants Striders Asylum - 50,000

My Azmodan clear on MP10 took me 9 minutes exactly
I engage at 0:31, kill at 9:31.
Now, I am not going to say it was easy....it took me 3 tries, and learning that I couldn't stand in his pools of stuff on the floor....but I was able to pull it off nonetheless. And so, I would like to see if anyone can do it either in the same time with less gold spent, or less time with about the same gold spent (no more then 779,084 gold to qualify for reward). I found all this gear on the AH within minutes of each other, didn't scour the AH for days or anything looking for deals....obviously.
For the first 10 people to accomplish this task I will refund the investment of gold on their gear, plus an additional 1 mill gold.

Also, this goes out to prove that you don't NEED a ton of gold in order to beat the hardest content, you just need some patience, skill, a good build, and strategic gearing.
Just post a vid on here of you beating my time, and a vid of your AH bids and I will make sure to get you your gold ASAP. You are allowed to use any build or style of play to accomplish this goal, and followers are optional. Good luck everyone who participates.
(Current gear set is on profile, I'll leave it up there for the next couple days)

Wayneold...nice clear. that's one serious challenge. no doubt skill in gear, ah, tactic, and skill-set is needed.
Thanks man...I actually hope somebody beats me...I like some friendly competition.
Nicely done! I was just curious, though, if anyone who isn't PL86 would have an even harder time? I am not downplaying your accomplishment by any means, i am just curious if the stat increases with PL become THAT noticeable, or if in the long run they are relatively negligible.
I hope it cost 779K gold for the reward limit....otherwise I will still feature you on the OP, just no reward....
woot. 9.5 mins with double nado
edit: 733k plus 1 vit and 1 str flawless square. Included in the price are 25k gloves that i originally bought. I had a 10k glove from a 100k set i built that i swapped in.

I'm sure that my paragon level helped me out in more ways then 1 for this...my strength base is much higher, and same with my vitality. During there run there were several times where I was on the razors edge as far as health goes...perhaps without the extra Vit I would have died.
There is the set with ss of ah purchases if anyone is interested.
I think pool spawn will definitely change the clear time.
If you can manage to get azmo into a spot and not have pools spawn immediately, you can continue to dps. This happened every pool spawn with the exception of the first.
In my 9.5min clear, he ended up somewhere in the middle of the map next to a column, obstructing my path. I couldn't do a 360 around him and I had to go back and forth. I dont know if that slowed me down but it was annoying.
woot. 9.5 mins with double nado
Eh? I am confused, did you include the price of everything in the final cost?
I agree....the damn pools were the biggest inconvenience...well, congrats on accomplishing the kill of Azmo....didn't complete the requirements for the reward, but you deserve an honorable mention in the OP. What was your final time and gear tally?
