Okay okay. i will try it first. i got some Noctua thermal paste NT-H1. can this help? if i reinstall with a fresh thermal paste? im running 75ish upon 100% load on Cinebench.

NT-H1 probably wouldn't provide much of an improvement if at all so I'd recommend saving it for when you actually need it. You can try oc'ing first. Depending on your chip, it may require more or less voltage for the same clocks for higher or lower temps. 

Good day to you guys! I would like to seek help from the seasoned PC tinkerers here.

I am planning to replace the stock cooler of my R3 2200g paired with a GB A320m-s2h v2 mobo and this mobo only has 1 sytem fan header and 1 cpu fan header. 

Im planning to get the Deepcool Gammaxx 400 (Any version would do) but i dont like the LED version of the fan and i cant support RGB fans since my mobo dont have RGB header.

Is there a way i can use it without the LED lights turning on or let alone replace the fan with Non-LED, Non-RGB PWM fan?

or is there other coolers out there worth looking considering a low budget pc builder like me?

 

Thanks in advanced.

As far as I know you can just slap any old pwm fan on your cooler, though it would just be unreasonable to buy the deepcool cooler and then pay another 10 bucks for a replacement fan.

 

I think the bequiet pure rock slim is in the same price range. I'm relatively new to building myself, but I bought a refurbished arctic freezer 34 esports duo for 20 bucks from arctic's own ebay account. A new one usually costs 35, not sure where you live though. I'm cooling a 3600 with it and it's working well, your chip probably generates less heat too.

That's sweet but the thing is im from the Philippines and hand me downs like that one are so rare here. Local Online stores are my only options here due to this pandemic. Local shops are closed and i doubt that they will have ample stocks and variety of pc parts will also vary. But ill check out that BQ pure rock slim tho. (cooler tier list is my go to tho when comparing this ones)

Just don't connect RGB header. On modern LED fans LED power goes through another connector than normal PWM signal. There are still some cheaper fans, but they either have always on RGB or propitiatory connectors.

Oh okay. how bout switching the fan with a PWM fan (Non RGB/LED)? is it okay?

Ive read someone say that fans for coolers are designed to work with the heatsink (bundled style) and i see others replacing their fan with other brands of pwm fan.

The Gammaxx 400 fan only has one fan header that powers both the fans and led.

Swapping the fan is fine but it's not as good of a value. You can probably get a better cooler for the money that doesn't use any leds. 

The Assassin Spirit 120 / Plus are good examples: https://www.lazada.com.ph/products/thermalright-assassin-spirit-120-as120-intel-amd-cpu-cooler-i593828048-s1626770905.html?

Why not stick with the stock cooler? The 2200g should be fairly easy to cool.

Im running an OC of 3.9ghz on Ryzen master. Can't OC through the bios since i have a low end mobo (A320).

Can the Wraith Cooler sustain this kind of ambitious OC on a budget setup? Im not that Rich mod. lol.

The Wraith Stealth isn't very beefy but the 2200g isn't hard to cool and people oc with it. Try it out first and decide on what to do from there depending on the results.
