quick answer needed re VGA Silencer rev3 or Silencer ATI2??

i need a real quick answer or answers.

The choice is between a VGA Silencer Rev3 or the newer VGA Silencer ATI2?

Its to go on a Asus 9600XT.

Rev3 has hi and low fan speed and is supposedly quieter than the VGA Silencer ATI which is the current version (without fan control) but smaller heatsink.

What is the better choice???
Another factor is they are only about $5 difference between them.

Thanks

I'd go for the Rev3, as you said it is quieter out of the box!

VGA Silencer Rev.3
- Quieter fan
- Larger heatsink
- Better quality plastic (new ATI Silencers feel like Tic Tac boxes)
