First build. Looking for critique. Biggest debate is on case, motherboard, and cooling options. Any advice in general would be appreciated.

Not a bad build. I would go with the stock cooler, amd has done a very good job with there spire coolers. As much as I love the 850 evo, they are not price effective, if your board supports it (which I think it does) a intel 600p costs about the same and is much faster. I would also concider downgrading to a 480, a 8gb card is 15$s cheaper then your chosen card, and can be basically OCed and get the same results

i'd reconsider the ram, as the ram you selected is not considered ryzen compatible .... corsair made a statement about eventually making ryzen compatible LED ram but gave no timeline.

a short list of ram confirmed to work well by either official AMD channels and/or my personal testing(stable 2933 and/or 3200) Corsair Vengeance CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 Corsair Dominator CMD16GX4M2B3000C15 Geil EVO X – GEX416GB3200C16DC G.Skill Trident Z RGB Series- F4-3200C16D-16GTZR G.Skill Trident Z F4-3200C16D-16GTZ

Case- i think this just comes down to personal preference and needs above all else... i'm not a fan of coolermaster's cases. but some people are...so i wont give specific suggestions unless you want to say exactly what your looking for in a case.

MOBO- no personal experience. from reviews its a solid budget board(some complaints about the network card, but nothing terrible). and i can't keep up with bios updates(complaints concerning original bios, just like EVERY am4 mobo) and i'd assume they have been/are being addressed, but i haven't looking into it for this specific board.

cooling- you selected the budget standard cooler. i will get the job done, but if you live in a perticularly hot area or plan to try your hand at overclocking(not that you can expect to get much given most people's experience) i'd recommend looking into a nice Noctua cooler or an AIO liquid cooler

hope this helps
