but here in Philippines it gets really hot and ive been experiencing restarts during gaming and some told me that the restarts are caused because of overheating.
That doesn't add up. Cpus are fine running at temps way hotter than your climate is. 80C/176F is still fine for these chips.
Ryzen 2600 has a thermal limit of 95C: https://www.amd.com/en/products/cpu/amd-ryzen-5-2600
Does your 2600 see over 85C?

For overheat-to-shutdown to occur, the cpu needs to have hit 95C first, after which it drops frequency and voltage in order to cool down. If temperatures fail to decrease - or, should they actually continue to rise, then it shuts the system off.
But for the above to happen, the cpu cooler is either broken or not mounted correctly. If you haven't observed this happening, then you've got other problems.

Common causes of PC restarts:
-bad, or failing psu
-memory corruption
-Windows driver corruption

"It gets really hot here", but you're running on a cpu which seldom sees over 100w of power usage unless running a stress test or some high overclock across all cores...

A liquid cooler will run just as hot if it isn't mounted properly or has a broken pump.

You don't need an AIO for the 2600, it's only a 65W TDP chip, meaning it doesn't get that hot. A simple air cooler, whether third party or stock, will suffice.
thanks for the reply!

i cleaned my pc specially the fans
i changed the thermal paste
and the temps are still high

If that's the case then go for that deep cool, it should be better than the stock.
