XFX Double dissipation vs DirectCU II HD 7950

Few reviews I looked at yesterday seem to find any benefit to the Double D cooler on the 7950. The temps on the 7970 were quite impressive though. Driving me crazy I cant find the ones I read.

Aesthetically, I find the DirectCU II cooler better.

Yeah... The DirectCU II is better because it has other features in the card itself that allows more overclocking and it's more safe.... Super Alloy and other features...
