So I know what the basic functions and parts of a CPU are, but I don't necessarily know what all of them do. I know that having more cache is better, but I don't know why. I know that higher clock speeds mean better performance, and architecture affects this, but what exactly is being clocked? How does operating frequency affect performance? When I watched the Crash Course video on CPUs, I got über-confused because I was not familiar with Boolean Algebra and how that plays in to computers. Also when explaining it to me, please don't use over or under complicated terminology (I understand some, but not all).
