First, I never have my graphics cards overclocked
I prefer to buy them factory overclocked, leave the cooler on and enjoy the (sometimes extended) warranty.

I am not concerned with the cooling abilities of them or any of the other models as I will be replacing it with an Arctic Cooler.
I guess all manufacturer will test and select overclocked samples so they are not simply relabeled badges of the same product but carefully selected and tested so your ability to overclock further might be better with an already overclocked sample.
