HIS 7950 IceQ Boost vs MSI 7950 OC

So I narrowed down my options to these two graphic cards after eliminating three xfx cards that had noise complaints but I may reconsider their 7950s if someone here has personal experience it them.

I'll be buying from amazon and the MIS is $212 after a $30 rebate while the HIS is $229.

Here's a link to the newegg comparison page:

    I'd love to get a gigabyte card if possible but I've got credit on my amazon so I'm limited to only ordering from there right now and that card is going for $264.

    I could bump it up that high for the better cooling and manufacturing in that card except that I want the Gold games offer and I'm limited to Amazon right now and the code is only eligible for purchases by their stock which ships within 3-5 weeks. Time I'd rather not wait

    It's from a third party; the amazon-sold ones have a 3-5 week ship estimate. But how about the Gigabyte from last year?:

    The thing is I'm comparing a tried and true card from last year, to the his from about half a year ago, to the MIS from just 2.5 months ago with supposed high temps.

    I thought I saw somewhere that the Gigabyte was hardware locked?
