haha I did this in high school for my "senior project." First start off with why you want to build a computer, e.g. better quality components, better warranties and support. Then go into the parts you picked and why you picked them for the price. Throw in a few benchmarks. Talk about the build process, and the precaution of ESD. Then you can talk about how you overclocked, both the ups and down of running frequencies higher than intended.
I remember I did my presentation and explained everything the best I could, and I don't think anyone had a clue what was going on. I dumbed it down as much as I could and included benchmarks between parts in the powerpoint in the background. Then when the time for questions came, one of the advisors asked "So how did you do it all?" Like it was some kind of miraculous thing. On top of that I had already spent 15 minutes explaining it in detail on how I picked the parts, why I picked them, and how I built it.
