Turbo Mode

Hi All,

A little unclear about if turbo mode is default or if I have to do something extra. Link:

Doesn't really have instructions on how to activate it, so is it my understanding that my board (just got it yesterday) already has this enabled?

No, sadly your board doesn't have it enabled! :( I have recently written an article for the MagPi about this as well as made a tutorial video (2 parts). It's really not hard at all if you are using Raspbian. Here is the link to my video:

And here is the DRAFT of the MagPi.... My article is page 18-20. I think! That is not the completed article though so stay tuned for the official final copy of the MagPi soon:

Good luck!
