Default any1 know a program you can overclock your AMD CPU in windows by small increments?

My MOBO only lets me raise my FSB from 166MHZ directly to 200MHZ, and I think that is too much to start out with. So I need a program or something so I can rise it with smaller incremets cuz I don't wanna bust my pc. Links or names appreciated.

Thanx,

I think you have to download CPUCooL. It's shareware and gets the job done. I should have a link to it in my sig if you're interested.

PP, that isn't a 3200+, that is close to an XP 3500+ now.

pc_boy try tweaking your CPU external frequency in combination with FSB to get more precise overclocks

Ya, but I have to jump from 166 to 200 and it will stil damage the cpu even if I take down the muliplier cuz the FSB would be running way too hard. So I need a program to rise my FSB by about 5mhz or something.
