yes they overclock both at the same speeds.

hence the best possible overclock you will get is however far the weaker card can get.

Just hope you don't get a terrible overclocking card.

Can you step up if you OC the cards? Doesn't that void the warranty?

i have no idea, and just earlier today i read about the step up program but i really didn't see anything about that, i could have missed in though.
Never mind: it does affect
"Graphics cards being returned for exchange in the BFG Trade Up Program must be returned in clean, “like new”, fully working condition, with all packaging, CDs, manuals, and accessories with a copy of the original receipt or invoice from the authorized seller.Returned cards must not have been modified in any way, including overclocking and changing the fan. Any third party games or software originally included in the box are not required to be returned"
how can they know though?
