overclocking is basically making your cpu clockspeed faster.

yeah, basically you make it work faster then it's stock speed. This however can be VERY risky, because if you don't cool it enough, it spells disaster for your mobo (forget the CPU, you overheat that and overclock it, and it's dead).

The best argument against evolution are creationists themselves. They prove that life is devolving rather than evolving.
