dont even try it if you are not experienced.

im just kiddin by the way.
you should be able to oc that 3800 to about 2.5 without increasing the voltage.
really, the way you can really screw something up is to add TOO much voltage.
a little is okay, but you should be careful about going past its specs (ie dont do it).

You don't use a program to overclock the CPU. You overclock throught the BIOS. Heres the guide I learned from, for overclocking:
Overclocking Guide - MajorGeeks Support Forums

you should be able to clock to 2.4 (4600) easily.
i can clock my 3600 to the same speed as a 6000 with a little work (still missing the cache, though).

It would be too big to copy the whole guide and post it here. But we do have a nice and easy guide, here at TF:
Overclocking Basics and Temperature Guide
