It depends on the build you have. Some can OC more some have better cores...In your case, I think there's both

The cores are the same, all will overclock just as much as the other, only difference being the BFG comes Pre-OC'd so you may get a little more out of it. I opted for the eVGA's and smoked the standard 3dmark05 scores with them, no overclocking.
