using the search button helps, so does google.
but anyways overclocking is changing your cpu's muiltiplier or fsb to increase the speed of your cpu

Changing a system's configuration so that it runs at a faster speed than recommended by the manufacturer.

Yes, you should read as many as possible before you start to overclock. You can fry parts of your computer.

If you are 15, you should have someone older helping you, that can watch what your doing. Kids like to get anxious and pushy, not to be rude.
And it all depends on what kind of computer you have, and I will agree with "tOny mOnt4n4", why didn't you use google first?

Age doesn't mean anything...as long as you are willing to take advice and let someone guide you until you think you got the hang of it. I'm 16...and have been overclocking since...12? not really sure lmao. Slow and steady wins the race...so don't rush into anything. Research will help you alot to clear the "fog" and testing and testing will guarantee stability. just my 2 cents
