Hi guys

new here and never over clocked before

Its a 3.5 ghz standard CPU but says it has a turbo charge of 4.1ghz

what does this mean does it mean i can put it up to say 4.0ghz without any over heating issues ?

Is it advisable to buy a better heat sync if i over clock it as im only using the standard heat sync supplied with the cpu

Here is the cpu details and my motherboard

i'm guessing this is the FX-6120?

AMD turbo core speed is used when cores are idle (usually about half) then the speeds of the active cores increase. It is not a limit on your CPU's ability to OC.
