Both cards will overclock. If one card can't overclock as fast as the other, they will both run at the slower speed.

doesnt make sense though that one card wont overclock as good as the other one since SLI requires the 2 exact video cards.

Well, if they are molecularly identical then they will OC the same, but if the model numbers are the same that doesn't mean they are molecularly identical.
