    over clocking is when you make your processor run faster than what the company your machine came from set it at. some boards overclock by pulling jumpers and some by changing bios you would have to get out your motherboard map and find out how yours worked.

    You could also overclock a graphics card, and RAM but as quarinteen said, if you don't know what your doing I wouldn't reccomend it either.
