Well seeing as one has 73 fins and one has 59, simple science would say the more surface (i.e. more fins) area the better for heat dissipation, so I would go with the first one

I dont feel like doing math right now as to figure out the SA of both but from the looks of it the one with more fins might be a better overall design.

I could be completely wrong though

I think the tower would be better since it has heatpipes built into it and two fans. I had the aero cool HT101 and it did a great job on my XP3200 cpu.They are very much the same heatsink
