Is one of these better than the other?

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?
