Sky did a review on this card and he found great OC functionality as well:

MSI GTX 670 Power Edition OC Review

You can't overvolt the asus model unless you do a hardware modification (with a solder gun). To me with all things equal, the MSI has more features than the asus for a similar price - and it also looks pretty darn cool I like the color scheme of MSI GPUs.
I ended up buying the MSI GTX 670 OC Power Edition having read the review on HardwareCanucks, the actual ability to overvolt was the main reason and oc potential.

I already have a Gigabyte GTX 670 Windforce 3X 2GB that does (+150/+700) 1340 Mhz boost on stock 1.175mV, will keep the MSI card regardless, as I only game at 1920x1200 anyway, so it will be great.

I was tempted with the GTX 680 Lightning, but abit too expensive for me, will get a GTX 780 Lightning if they release one, whenever they come out.
