better is a metter of opinion and it all depends on the power level, the H beams are going to be stronger but the I beams will probally be lighter

The new Hot Rod has an article on con rods including a section of 'H' vs 'I' beam rods. Basically, they say that there is no real difference, but get it and read it for yourself.
