How much is this if you have a 3GHZ chip because I was reading anandtech and they were talking about DDR2 and the ABIT AG8 and how it can overclock upto 258 because there is no PCIE lock yet but there will be in a bios version :) but they say that it can go even faster if there was a lock.

Sounds like you need a little tutorial on FSB and multipliers.

Your CPU speed is your multiplier times your FSB speed. If you have a 3.0GHz Pentium 4 C chip (I'm guessing because you didn't specify), your multiplier is 15. At the stock speed of 200 MHz FSB, your CPU speed is 200x15 = 3000. If you raise your FSB to 258, your new CPU speed is 258x15 = 3870 MHz.
