The ASUS board has the passive cooling, which is nice for the chipset. I'm not as familiar with the MSI...

As for the Heasink, if you just wiped a very small part off, it's probably not a problem, otherwise, you'll need to clean that off with some Isopropyl Alcohol (rubbing) and get all the rest of that pad off, then appy some new thermal grease, preferably Arctic Silver 5 or Ceramique. Both can be bought off the web for around $10...
