So guys, I am fairly new to the ocing businesses, is there any difference between a factory OC card and User OC card performance wise? So if I bought a regular BFG card, and OCed it a bit would it perform identically to the OC version with it.
You can never be guaranteed to perform the same but in most likely hood yes you can oc to the same specs, however you need to read the manufactorers warranty to see if they support over clocking. BFG is not one of them but xfx and evga are. If bfg can prove that the card was damaged by ocing they will void the warranty.
