Definitely go with the cheaper one, so the Turbo. I doubt you'll be able to squeeze out that much more from the FTW to justify its initial cost.
The overclocking potential pretty much depends on luck. I had the gtx 1070 msi gamer x and i can tell you that, that card wouldn't overclock at all on the core. As a matter of fact, aside from the OC mode the card came with, there was no additional overclocking possible on the core at all, no matter how high the powerlimit was or the vcore. Going for even a cheaper card, could also give him one that can't even pass 1900mhz.

I have my eyes on the Palit Super Jetstream, priced at 479€, being the cheapest aftermarket card with non-blower cooler. It looks super slick, has a gigantic cooler and what I read from 980ti etc. reviews it seems like pretty much the same as "mainstream" brands. Anyone have anything to say?
Palit is actually a bigger brand than msi and asus, just less advertised. As for their gpu, they are top notch. As a matter of fact, their pascal cards, are the fastest, coolest and quietest out of all brands. Oh and it comes with a dual bios, in case of a failure, the card would remain functional. Added security level
Something that could come in handy for modders.
Here is a review for the palit gamerock one,
I just sent my msi gamer x back and am replacing it with that gpu you are looking to buy. If you can wait till friday, i might be able to aid you. If you go for the msi one, which in my opinion actually looks physically pleasing, make sure that the black metal next to the outputs, isn't in your way to the screws. I had hard time tightening them.
