How does CPU "boost" work?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I own an Asus ROG G20BM Gaming PC and inside there is an AMD FX-770K processor. In this PC's description, it was mentioned that the CPU's base clock speed was 3.5 GHz and it could reach up to 3.9 GHz when "boosted". Can someone please clarify if they meant "when overclocked" and if not, then does the CPU get "boosted" automatically when the software which is running is more demanding? Again, if not, how do you manually boost it/overclock it?

Thank you a lot :)

I never raised the processor's operating frequency, because I'm afraid of damaging the computer. I would like to hear the opinion of experts.
