What is Overclocking?

If you're just getting into gaming, the terminology can be a bit daunting. We're here to help. Over the next little while we'll go over some of the most common computer-related gaming terminology.

Let's get started: overclocking.

Overclocking is essentially the action of making your computer run faster than it was meant to run. This most commonly applies to CPUs (central processing units), but other components can be overclocked too.

When a component is overclocked, it will perform more operations per second than it was designed to, but at the cost of producing more heat. This is done by tweaking the computer's BIOS (basic input/output system). It is important to note that additional cooling components must also be installed to prevent damage to your computer.
