Build guide recommendations megathread

Also I forgot to mention that the example builds with an Arctic Freezer 34 DUO do have coolers (even though pcpartpicker says they don't), so don't worry about that.

The problem is that the 34 DUO isn't listed on pcpartpicker as of now (16th February 2019).

I need help. No experience in building computers, just a lot of reseach. I'm diving right in though. Will this work for a beginner gaming PC? Need advice and guidance.

EVGA 500 W1, 80+ WHITE 500W, Power Supply,

I'd change that to a Corsair CX450. Those EVGA W1 power supplies aren't that great..

MSI Gaming AMD Ryzen B350 DDR4 VR Ready HDMI USB 3 CFX ATX Motherboard (B350 TOMAHAWK)

It's not a bad motherboard, but it may need a BIOS update.

I would recommend an ASRock B450M Pro4.

Some may know me as 1kv. I'm not liable for anything that may happen as a result of following my advice. Take what I say with a grain of salt, some things may not be correct.
