I'm looking at 2 AMD Radeon 7870's from Newegg. One is HIS and the other is Diamond.

The HIS is about 2 inches bigger than the Diamond card. Other than that I don't see a difference. The HIS fan seems to be mostly for show. Does anyone know if one brand is actually better than the other? I am worried the larger card, even with a big fan, might restrict airflow in the case. Can anyone recomend one over the other?

Aftermarket coolers almost always have better cooling than reference models. You'll see better temps with the HIS model.
