Will my FX-8120 bottleneck a HD 7950?

So I ordered the Sapphire 7950 and it should arrive tomorrow. I was wondering if my FX-8120 would bottleneck the 7950 (which I plan to overclock at some point). I have it at stock speeds right now which 3.1 GHz with turbo up to around 3.9 GHz (shows as 3888 MHz in AMD Overdrive) . Would I need to overclock my CPU to prevent bottlenecking?

Any suggestion for a relatively cheap cooler that would also provide a decent overclock?
