In terms of specifications, the second is better due to efficiency. The oem for both models is HEC and both are tested/rated at 40°C but the second model is "bronze" certified but the first is only "plus" certified.

Second one is better.

okay but apparently the evga white version comes with ''• An Ultra-Quiet Fan 120mm and is 5.77 cheaper :P

cause of the quieter fan and cheaper price wouldn't the first one be recommended to buy??

The product page isn't very detailed for either of them. The second one is better (80+ bronze). Same units but the second one has better components.

Compare the bronze rated vs just the 80+. Not too much difference.
