I am not aware of any hard statistics for this comparison.
Anyway, I surveyed the top 90 World Ranking of 3DMark11 Vantage Performance Scores with a single GTX570.
Many people do not identify the name of the card manufacturer. But for those who do name it, I see 5 Asus (reference cooling) vs 10 MSI (of which 3 use of Twin Frozr II and the other 7 use reference cooling).
For these 5 Asus with reference cooling, OC speed are: 1005, 1001, 950, 921, 826 (ave=941)
For the 3 MSI with Twin Frozr II, OC speed: 1015, 980, 945 (ave = 980)
Whether this 49MHz is 'substantial difference', you can decide for yourself.
That Gigabyte is a good one too. I suppose this and the MSI Twin Frozr will excel more in their temperature number than in their ultimate overclock speed.
