Default can I flash the BIOS of my GPU?

After buying my GPU, GTX560 TI CU II yesterday I thought I was getting the TOP version. Now That I know there is two GPU's that look Identical, Have the same extra special parts, Same cooler, Paint, Everything except the 900Mhz Core clock out of the box.
So is there anyway to flash my BIOS with the ASUS TOP version so I also have the 900Mhz without overclocking??
I know I could just stick to Overclocking it myself, But I am wondering if the TOP's BIOS has better MEM timings or other settings that help it achiev the 900Mhz out of the box?
What are your thoughts guys??

I don't see why you wouldn't just overclock it yourself, it should reach 900 and even 1Ghz no problem at all.. although it probably is possible.

You'd be best to overclock it first to see what the card can actually do before doing a bios upgrade and getting a unstable card.
