Default Which GTX 560 TI to get?

I am going to buy a new graphics card. After some research I have decided to get the GTX 560 TI. I am stuck on two graphics cards:

EVGA: Newegg.com - EVGA SuperClocked 01G-P3-1567-KR GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Or

MSI: Newegg.com - MSI N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

go with the EVGA for lifetime warranty...plus I read that the default fan setting is only 30%, so you can up the fan speed with EVGA Precision, and it will be cooler (with slightly more noise of course)..

Any one with a refrence style cooler, These new cooler designs don't exhaust the hot air out of the case nor do they cool the vrm's and ram the same so it leads to a shorter lived card.

Like this-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130683

Avoid this as it will increase the heat in your case and be a shorter lived card as the ram and vrm's will run much hotter-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127565

For the record, I just got the evga 560ti fpb model. While it exhaust out the case, my temps have increase by 4-5 degree while folding.

I'm not sure if its cause the fans sucking my intake, or its cause unseen load...

And yes, auto is like 32% fan speed.

Folding is extremely demanding a raise of 4 or 5 degree is completely normal.

Given that the only negative (according to that review) is some average soldering (which is to be expected for a low-end PSU), I'd say it's fine.
