overclocking is where the user manually goes into the BIOS of the pc and sets the processing power of the components to higher than stock
which makes the pc run faster
and also causes more heat as a result
and the extra heat also shortens the life span of the pc

have you taken a look at a barebone kit?
and what are you wanting to do with this pc?
just surf the web
or play certain games or what?
the more info the more we can help
