overclocking is a way to kinda boost your processor to achieve a better preformance then it has- its kinda like releasing the processers potential - its like walking...and then you gain more speed...running

In reality, most chips are perfectly capable of running at 3200+ speeds, but customers demand different price levels, so they offer the same chip for different prices at different speeds.
Here's where overclocking comes in. CPU manufacturers try to discourage overclocking their chips by locking the multiplier. However, the CPU speed can still be increased by boosting the overall speed of the motherboards front-side-bus (FSB). Again, using our example, a Barton 2500+ has a default FSB speed of 333 mhz. By using faster RAM, and boosting the FSB to 400mhz, the chip performs as fast as a 3200+ (actually slightly faster).
The CPU you choose has a lot to do with your overclocking success. Some will overclock well, and some won't. Currently the AMD 2500+ mobile chip is very popular because it runs at a lower voltage then the desktop model (equals less heat), and it has an unlocked multiplier, which means the CPU speed can be adjusted independent of the FSB. P4's in the lower ranges are also getting very good overclocks.
The AMD64 is not a very good overclocker, and rumors are circulating that the new Intel 915(?) chipsets have an anti-overclocking feature.
Hope that wasn't too techy. It is a very technical issue, and much more complicated than I can answer in one reply.

But, there are programs that will aid you in this process (one example for video cards being Rivatuner ).
If you are overclocking for the first time, my suggestion is to get really comfortable with using the BIOS (start with this guide), and maybe getting an external temperature reader, in case the onboard temp sensor fails.
Just my two cents!

I am viery much new computer user.
I just need clear knowledge about overcloking.
Can anyone explain it clearly what is overclocking ?
If i do that what kind of performant I will get ?
And If i do this ..is there any problem in my pc ?
My pc Configure is
Octek mohter board.(A+S+L)
Intel Celeron 2.26 D processor
128 DDR Ram
Now just tell me how could i do ?

And it is bad becase if it done beond what can be handled you could make the temp go up and cook your device (ram, cpu, video card.....)
So the best tip that I every found was it you can not have the system fail, or can not pay for the new device it it failed do not do it, becase you just might be unlucky and have a computer that will not work.
