That is not true if you apply enough voltage. Keep in mind if you overvolt too much you will have a brand new paperweight.

Tell him that if windows is unstable, the CPU is also unstable.

Software does not become unstable due to any type of O.C. The only exception is very old software like the original Doom game as it was cpu dependent for play speed. When run on modern cpu's it runs so fast as to be unplayable. This is not exactly the same as saying it is unstable but as close as it might get. As to your friend, well ask him why he clings to incorrect information? If he has some documentation to support his view please post some links.

I swear that Doom used the real time clock. I remember there being a few levels which would bug out if the RTC on the PC was broken
