Besides the extra fan on one?

The one with 3 fans have a slight overclocking, so is a little faster. Because of the 3rd fan it should also run cooler, and that could help it work well for a longer time.

They're like the same price I wish that one with the 3 fans would come back into stock.

The one with the 3 smaller fans will be much louder and have to work harder to maintain the same temps as the other.

ADD, no. Where is the thread for Fallout OCD players?

No, is exactly the opposite, because the overclocking is very small, and there is a larger area to dissipate the heat, the fans only need to work at a fraction of their top speed.

Sapphire is better of the two. The Gigabyte voltages are locked and thus has less OC headroom over the Sapphire which is unlocked and is at a higher stock.

Both are good cards but you will get better performance out the Sapphire (not to mention it's cheaper)

If you plan on pushing for a heavy overclock go sapphire, if you plan on not overclocking or doing a mild overclock then go gigabyte imo.

I have the Gigabyte card and it's excellent, but I hear they voltage lock the newer ones which is a problem if you plan to overclock.
