Overclocking software for old CPUs

3 minutes ago, Vector0102 said:

So I have quite a few old CPUs like the Core 2 Duos and some Pentiums, I can overclock the FSB with SetFSB but my mobo BIOS has no options to overclock anything. Is there any software to increase the voltage and other things for Windows 10?

If the bios can't do it windows can't either

I was able to overclock the FSB while the BIOS couldnt do it

The bios could do it as FSB ocing is well done in the bios all the setFSB does is send an instruction to a very much so existing (maybe not visible) part in there that tells it to just up the FSB. Back then that was one of the popular ways you could get around a bios that didn't allow ocing and do a sort of oc in a limited fashion.
