It should work fine I would think, the ZALMAN CNPS9900 is a well recieved (and reviewed) HSF, the only drawback I am aware of is the inability to swap fans

sweet so if i brought it up to like 4.0ghz it would be ok ? also side question you might be able to help me with. ive only built 1 other computer so still pretty new. how does the turbo feature work on that cpu is it like an automatic oc to 4.0?

You should turn off the turbo feature when you overclock. Conceivably you have pushed it to a certain limit you can tolerate. the turbo just pushes it past that limit which may not be stable in an overclock situation.

Pretty much like an automatic OC, the turbo feature works by raising the CPU clocks only when demand requires it then lowers the clocks when demand is low
