If you're from MD, you might be close to a Micro Center. There are two of them.

or this, which comes with a decent cooler

For the RAM, i recommend this . . .

Get some MX-4 Thermal paste to go along with the cooler.

The Ryzen 3000 7 nm CPU and X570/550 boards are coming in a few weeks.

EDIT: Dual channel is fine BUT make sure you use either 2 sticks of RAM or 4 sticks. One stick will be a bottleneck.
