Default Chipset speed

hi all,

I've read some books of hardware, they were pretty good but I couldn't find
the answer to the following question:

At which speed does the northbridge (called MCH in intel architecture)

I know that it generates the clock of the system which is the base of the FSB and CPU speed, but the northbridge is also connected to different buses such as the DMI, AGP or PCI-Express and memory bus, each of them running at different speeds, but to perform some operation the chipset has to have some frequency at which it does so (I think) ... How exactly this works? , How can the northbridge communicate with different components on different buses with different speeds? How the northbridge process information? (and at which speed?)

I searched that in google but I got more confused

Thanks in advance!
