You can overclock any GPU in the market, the models that comes with the "OC" in the box are just stock models with overclock from manufacturer.

Afaik some GPU`s are voltage locked, thus not allowing for proper overclock.
If you want to be sure regarding the possibility of overclocking, search for reviews on the card you are interested with to get more details about this.

Even a locked GPU can be overclocked, not at the same level that a unlocked one...but can be overclocked.
