Other than ones with a different heatsink and fan, all overclocked ones I have seen are the same as reference models.

Factory overclocked cards are never clocked much higher than the reference ones to start with. I upgrade my components all the time and have never had issues when clocking to the overclocked versions. I must say, I never stop there though. I always want more speed.
