What Is Overclocking?

Overclocking your unlocked Intel Core processor, RAM, and motherboard is a way to custom tune your PC. You can adjust the power, voltage, core, memory settings, and other key system values for more performance. It helps speed up your components---and your gameplay. It can also help with processor-intensive tasks such as image rendering and transcoding.
