I think ASIC quality has zero bearing on overclocking potential. First 7970 that I owned had an ~84% asic rating and couldn't overclock past 1150MHz. This was with the factory Dual-X cooler. The Lightning that I am currently in the process of refunding had an ASIC of 56% and could reach 1210-1225MHz on the core.
