Default Power Color HD 7870 MYST Version vs GIGABYTE Radeon 7870

Hey guys both cards are on sale for the same price

Newegg.ca - PowerColor PCS+ AX7870 2GBD5-2DHPPV3E Radeon HD 7870 MYST. Edition (Tahiti LE) 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card (UEFI Ready)
Newegg.ca - GIGABYTE GV-R787OC-2GD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

As seen above, the GIGABYTE version has way more positive reviews.

However, i recently discovered that the MYST version of 7870 is actually a better card because it has a higher memory clock and is closer to the 7950. Which would be a better buy? Wouldn't one fan create more heat/noise?

Please guide me as I am building a new PC. thank you
