Is there a good program to adjust clock speeds and voltages through Windows that would work on Pentium 4 Northwood running on a i845gv mini-itx board? I've always done it in the BIOS so I don't know the capabilities of software based overclocking tools.

I actually want to underclock.

I'm trying to get my mini-itx project system down to more comfortable temperatures. When its busy running games and programs in a warm room for a few hours it gets up to 65C and thats way too hot for me. The 2.5" drive, the ram, the chipset heatsink and the CPU HS\F are too hot to touch.

I can easily switch a jumper over to make the 2.4Ghz P4 run at 1.8Ghz, but I think this would do a lot more if I could lower the voltage a bit as well.

Is this possible? Or does this require a program that can specifically recognize this motherboard? If so, I'm probably out of luck. Its a Migrus brand board, and it isn't very well known.

Also, if anyone knows of any extra tiny case-cooling solutions, I could probably use one.
