Bb30 conversion

I have tried to eliminate BB30 creaking.
I have tried almost everything that has been suggested so far in the forum and other sites.
However, the creaking still exists when pedaling off the saddle.
Replacing brgs on the BB30 is a bit of a hassle which I wouldn't mind as long as the creaking problem got solved.
So, I was thinking of converting to a threaded BB using either FSA BB30 threaded adapter or the Praxis work conversion.
As I understand, if you use the threaded adapter you can then use the Shimano Hollowteck BB, but if you go the Praxis way you have to use their BB brgs.
Any recommendation or view is appreciated.
