Its basically the title, i don't know what it is. 

a very basic description of overclocking would be increasing the frequency at which the selected components operate so that they can perform more processes in a given amount of time

manually tweaking the clock the CPU runs at in a way that makes it run outside of processor specifications.

Or any other part of your computer like gpu or monitor

I also actually don't know why the CPU speed is called "clock" I just heard of it and mimic what other people called it..

Make a thing be faster/stronger by increase the power that goes into the thing.

Think of it like a light switch dimmer, on low the light is barely lit up and barely use any power. On high it use a lot of  power while outputting a lot of light. But then if you pump too much power (there are safeties for this in the case of light dimmers), it can blow up the light and possibly start a fire. Everything with moderation~

PC overclocking is the same, except replace the light with the CPU and the Dimmer with whatever overclocking utility you're using. The safety is your self control.

increasing the CPU/GPU/memory clock (usually)by tweaking the voltage to make your mission on the same load(including gaming run more smoothly )finish time decrease,personal opinion

maybe because for the CPU/GPU unit, the basic circuit is crystal oscillator,which it offers a stable ,accurate single frequency vibrate ,and it also keeping the rest of the part in the system synchronized(parhaps?)
