never done it, but the jist of it is going into your BIOS and telling the processor to run at a faster clock speed then it does stock. Clock speed is the 2.0 ghz, and 2.2 ghz you see processors often labled with.

For example, if you bought an AMD processor with a clock speed of 2.2 ghz, and then you went into your BIOS you could tell it to run at a clock speed of 2.4 ghz or 2.6 ghz. This all seems great and dandy, but their are many risks to overclocking. Overclocking will cause your processor to run hot, and hot parts are always a big no-no.
