Overclocking is running a device (CPU/RAM/Video card core clock) faster than its stock settings.

Example: My 1045t runs at 2.7Ghz "stock". I overclocked it to run at 3.4Ghz.

Think of clockrate as engine rpm's. When you overclock, you set the clockrate faster, which is like more rpm's. To reach a higher clockrate, you sometimes have to increase the voltages, which is like adding more fuel. Your processor has to have adequate cooling so it doesn't overheat, just like a engine radiator.
