Okay, so I changed my build... but now it's crashing.Edit
Technic Builds that have ALL the cool new features of the mods you want to play, tend to be what's called "Development Builds". (Dev Builds) You might notice that those different builds tend to crash when you do something simple like sleeping in a bed. To prevent that issue when you first start playing with Technic, the Launcher selects a stable build it calls a "Recommended Build" (Rec Build) instead of the latest Dev Build.
The Rec Build has been tested by many, many people and is considered very stable. It might not have every recipe or the latest version of all the mods in it but the key point is that it's stable and it works. You'll need to choose a build somewhere between the latest and the recommended to do what you want.
How do I know which build has what I want and is the most stable?Edit
The best option is just always use the latest build if you want to tinker around with new stuff. For actual play, however, stick to the recommended build. Technic gives no clue about stability besides those 2 labels.
You could just keep testing them out and try to find a balance you like. At that point though you might as well just mod your own client with the ones you want and hope for the best. Few people will be able to help with a custom build
This list is of builds that people have taken the time to list. It should help others that are looking for their "perfect fit" if you like a build that's not the recommended or the latest (PLEASE) take a moment and look at your mods folder and list what it has. If you like the balance then other probably will also. Note: Technic is an ever evolving pack of mods. This list will never stay up to date.

Newest Dev build - Not meant for normal play
That link is only meant for issues with the mods, Posting bugs about the launcher itself will likely get you banned there. Just like everywhere else, always read Stickies before you post.
This is the Latest Build. The mods included will change fast as testing continues. Please help test this build.
