Which HD7970 to buy for overclocking?

Hi. I have read online that some 7970s are getting voltage locks. What would be the best for overclocking? Do i even need to up the voltage for a increase on the 7970?

Right now i got a hd7870 at 1175/1375 without touching the voltage. If i go to 1200 i crash/BSOD.

Any info would be greatly appreciated :) Oh here is my specs just for any extra info. If you need to know something else lemme know.

Motherboard: Asus rampage extreme 2
Computer case: CM Storm trooper
Processor: Intel core i7 920 OC'd to 3.3ghz(going to 4ghz soon)
CPU fan: Noctua NH-D14
Power supply: Delta ps2 ex 750w(Getting a corsair 750w because this one is REALLY old)
Graphics card: HD7870
RAM: 6x2gb brand is elpida or something.
OS: Windows 7 64bit

    Any specific reasoning behind that? or just personal preference?

    It has a very large heatsink, it has high clocks to begin with. I believe sapphire is better with letting you do higher voltages as well. The gigabyte one looks like it has a pretty good heatsink as well.
