An AMD Phenom 9950 X4 Black Edition running at 4.7Ghz!?!?! Great scott! Is he running it on LN2???
Cause even if its the very best air cooler I struggle to believe that your mate has it running more than 4.0Ghz let alone 4.7Ghz.
Haha yeah, the thing is it only lasted for a month until it got frazzled.
Anyways, to get a nice stable OC you really need to be doing it in the BIOS. So ditch the EasyTune and SpeedFan. Download CoreTemp and CPUZ. Study your Gigabyte motherboard BIOS and how to navigate around it. It really isn't that hard.
And give us your system specifications cause it would help a lot.
