what is the difference between those two video cards? just that the top it's factory overclocked? they will have the same overclocking results?

it's only the overclocking, it's the same pcb, cooling and everything.

the kepler chip is just tested to run at TOP speeds, so taking maybe the oc version and flash it shouldn't be that much of a problem.

no and u don't actually need that when u know what u do while flashing, plus it's the same pcb, gpu, memory and everything just different speed and maybe also a little higher voltage.

Yes, that's the difference. I'd go with regular version. TOP were removed from the market because too much of them were unstable.
Overclocking results depend on whether TOP versions have handpicked higher binned GPUs or not. If not, they will overclock the same.

iw seen the review of the top video card with a 10 note but i think you must to be lucky to catch one...
i will go for the regular version and i will find by my self the sweet spot of overclocking

TOP versions typically have higher binned chips that can be OCed to a higher frequency than their lower model cards. That said, peak OC frequency doesn't tell the whole story. There are MSI cards that can actually yield higher frame rates at lower clocks, and both MSI and Gigabyte often have more stable frame rate windows than TOP cards.

It's never a good idea to shop for peak frequency alone, and ASUS seems to sell that concept so easily, esp with such low temps and noise. What many don't realize is when your frame rates wander all over the place from very low to very high, it's easier to achieve lower temps and thus lower noise with lower fan settings, but performance wise that lack of frame rate stability is noticeable in game.
