Yes i know how to OC a card. Ive done it with my gtx 680, and many cards before. But my question was wether or not a SC card have a better OC potential.

They didn't with the 400 series, 500 series, 600 series, or Titans. I wouldn't expect factory overclocked models to start having better OC potential now.
Just need to find a 4 leaf clover before buying & hope the luck works.

For the $10 extra, you'll get a better resale value when you sell it down the line, by more than that $10 handily, in my experience. I went with the SC for the guaranteed small OC, but mainly for the extra resale value when it comes time to change cards.

In general, no, it has no real bearing at all on how well your card will OC.

This is how I determine the difference between a vanilla card and a factory overclocked card. The vanilla cards are for those people who are happy to overclock the card themselves and risk and long term damage that may be done. The factory overclocked editions are for people who aren't comfortable overclocking themselves but are happy to know that the factory overclocked editions have been tested at an already overclocked speed. So basically, if you're a newbie to high end graphics cards you can get a factory overclocked edition at around the same price as a vanilla card with a warranty that the overclock will be fine.
