I've seen people say that there are good batches chips for overclocking and some on the other hand, aren't as good. So how do I find out if I have a good chip?

It's on the box. Google search it and see if there is anyone that lists it and what their overclock is.

Just overclocking it gives a better idea, because if you find someone that wasn't really pushing their chip or had bad cooling, then their overclock will be lower than yours

Check the batch number or chip itself for general OC. That said, each chip has its own limits and can only be found out by pushing it yourself. Up the OC slowly and see where the limit is and where you feel comfortable with the Voltage settings, Clocks and Temp.
