Default Antec NEO or Earth Watts? quick please!!

Real simple I am getting a new free PSU and have a choice between these two:

Antec NEO 500

Or

Antec Earth Watts 500


The Neo has 3 12v rails and the EA only 2.

And the NEO is quieter

Thanks

No i haven't, I was waiting for you to reafirm it for me Ste.

This reviews conclusions do not make it that easy:

You'd be fine with either one honestly. According to that article, the Neo's slightly quieter and has a better heatsink, Earth Watts is slightly more energy efficient.
