It means pushing its clock speed beyond the manufacturers settings, and in the process overheating and frying it if you don't know what you're doing. All in all, not going to improve your gaming experience that much in most cases.

If you don't know what overclocking means, I certainly do not recommend you attempt it. Not knowing what you're doing is the quickest way to melt your hardware.

Yes, I mean melt.

Overclocking is overrated anyway :p I'm playing on my brother's PC and he overclocked it a bit. It kept crashing every hour or so while I was playing The Witcher. I think the overclocking is the reason, but I don't know enough to undo it myself :o

I never tried to overclock because I've heard that burns the CPU or GPU
Anyways this is what happens on a bad overclock:

Good to know. I was wondering what it was just yesterday. Mine's over clocked but not by me (obviously) but by the company I bought it from. :p
