Yeah I liked the one with one because it pushes all the hot air out the back of the case

Think you're going to be happier with the one you're getting. I'll never buy another one with a reference-style blower. Freakin loud and it's obnoxious. A reasonably well vented case keeps the open cooler from being a problem.

The one with twin fans will cool better and quieter at load and will be fine as long as your case has good ventilation

The one with 1 fan will be fine for most things but at load will be louder and if in badly ventilated case, may reduce the temps of other parts since it vents out

I love my sapphire 7850 2gb which has a Dual fan, keep the one you're going with

Quiet @ 60% fan speed and keeps temps about 50-55oc load(BF3) which is pretty damn good to say my core is at 1100

I like Sapphire TriXX the most since it allows you to change voltage and OC out of the box while MSI afterburner requires you to edit it to get you voltages

HIS iTurbo I think also allows for voltage change, I will check them both out and compare
