Under Windows I used something like SoftFSB to change the Frontsidebus and get a few MHz more out of my box. But why overclock using Windows? It doesn't make much sense, because there I don't need power.

Do you guys know any overlocking tools for linux? I think when compiling something big even a few MHz will make sense.

That's what we do at school, set FSB to something strange and then have fun when our teachers wonder about the warning-sounds

The bad thing is, I only have a old Chaintech 6BTM where I can't do anything in BIOS

I need overclocking tools too, The reason being is that it is a lot simpler. In the bios you have to check it, then boot up, then shut down and so on.
