Is overclocking risky...???
Can anyone explain how to do it IF IT IS NOT RISKY..

Yes, it is risky...for the most part.

If you use a windows based overclocking utility it is a lot safer than going in to your BIOS. You should avoid changing any voltage settings unless you have water cooling and you should keep an eye on your temps after overclocking to make sure they are safe.

If you are interested in trying, let me know what cpu/MB you have. Also some cpu's do not allow overclocking.

you are asking clocking related to seo or related to computer?

Overclocking is great, but it does come with a few risks. They aren’t nearly as high as they used to be, given the relative ease of modern overclocking, but they’re risks to be considered nonetheless.

When overclocking, what we’re doing is increasing the multiplier on the CPU, allowing it to run faster. The higher we clock the CPU, the higher voltage the CPU will require, which will thus produce more heat.

Heat is the main concern of CPUs, and too much heat can lead to a shorter lifespan for the chip. Generally speaking, once you’re CPU is consistently running at above 86 degrees Celsius, you’re starting to get into the danger zone. Temperatures like that certainly won’t kill your CPU immediately, but it could overall lower the functional lifespan.
