You have to go into bios. Overdrive is good, but the bios is better. up the multi till it's 3.0, test stability with the next boot up. If it is unstable, go into bios again then up the cpu voltage. Each up on the cpu voltage (vcore) should be just one increment up each time till the CPU is stable. If you can't be stable it could be your temps are a bit to hot. As before my temps were way to high, and all i could reach was 3.7, but now i got it realll cool with the IC7 Thermal paste and now i can hit 3.9ghz. Just a possibility though.

Test for stability by using the Prime95, and check the temp with programs like CoreTemp(I personally like coretemp more). And according to AMD, you should keep your cpu's temp under 60C, at least aim for that. 65 would be OKish... But a little to high.

I have never overclock from bios before. and i have NEVER changed volts before. what is the max volt i should but to the 9850 i can not afford to burn this baby up no money and it is all i have. if you could explane to me how to do this it would be great

Well just slight ups in the voltage shouldn't burn out the CPU if it does, that's really unusual :p
