Default Which Power Supply?

What's the difference between these two PSU's?



Only difference I can see is one has 2 fans and the other has only 1. Which do you think I should get? The one with 2 fans will probably have better cooling right? The one with 1 fan appears to have a slightly larger fan on top and passive cooling on the side in place of a fan.

I think the only difference is one has two fans and one uses passive cooling in the place of one of the fans. Since I plan to use this PSU to power a fair amount of stuff and I don't want it getting too hot I think I might go with the 2.0 model.

Thanks for not responding guys. (kidding)
