Asus ProArt B550-Creator - Is this a good motherboard any catches

I just shorted out a circuit on the Dark Hero with thermal paste spill. So I am looking for new motherboard to test some Ryzen 5900X CPUs for best overclock and keep the best binned one and sell the rest

 

Is this a good one:

 

https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards-Components/Motherboards/ProArt/ProArt-B550-CREATOR/

 

Is it ok to use for gaming even though it is called Creator Art and not their ROG lineup?? Like is it just a theme difference?

 

Does it still have a great VRM and good overclocking functions in the BIOS?

 

Is there any catches to Asus Creator ProArt boards vs their ROG boards??

 

I do not have any need nor care for WiFi or Bluetooth and know it already does not have those and am good with it. I also know B550 except for top M.2 slot is Gen 3 which is fine with me.

 

Though it does not have a VRM nor chipset fan and want to confirm that.

What thermal paste? It’s usually non conductive. 
Are you using LM?

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.

Why is the 5800x so hot?

What the pro art line has is generally better I/o and a few of the enterprise features you would see on the pro workstation board lineup, it’s meant to be used for workstations but not where the user needs an HEDT platform

if you need a bunch of usb, lots of storage options and such, that’s the route to go

think photo, audio or video editing, handling portable media and such


otherwise nah, get a board suited for your use case

Its not liquid metal, but too much got spilled onto and in between tiny ICs near the CPU socket that I tried cleaning it with rubbing alcohol and it is stuck between there and impossible to get it it is so small. I do not want to risk running it and breaking something down the road so just going to get new mobo.

 

I know paste is non-conductive, but that does not mean it is free to spill and interfere with ICs especially when too much is trapped. If it was an itty little bit, ok where as even an itty little it of liquid metal kiss the whole board goodbye.

 

It probably may be ok, but do not want to risk that conductivity between the ICs is poor and motherboard just fails anytime because of the thermal paste.

Unless it's conductonaut, it's probably non conductive and thus totally safe to run with. So again, What thermal paste?

Nonconductive. You should be fine.

The worst that is going to happen is that the temp on those IC's is slightly affected. But that is a GIANT if. And who knows, it could make them run cooler 😉

 

You are absolutely fine and buying a new mobo because of this reason alone is a waste.
