Default What's the difference between these two NV Silencers?

The specs on the first one aren't detailed enough for me to see a difference between the two heatsinks. Is it just that the second one has a bigger fan?

EDIT: Added the word ONLY for clarification

The first one is compatible with the 6800 and 7800 Series. The second one is only compatible with ONLY the 6800 series.

So, is the difference between the two worth paying the extra money?

HELLO!!!

READ! THIS IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO COOLERS.
The first NV 5 rev. 3 = They changed the mounting to fit the newer 7800 series. The other one is an old NV 5 before the 7800 series came out. newegg.com still has both coolers.

THEY BOTH ARE CERAMIC BEARINGS!!!

Close this thread due to stupidity...

No I read what he said, and i saw it on the newegg under the specs. I didn't mean to ignore him or anything like that, I just thought there was more to it than just which card it fit if the price difference was 2 times. Sorry HAVOC, didn't mean to seem like I just ignored you.
