the motherboard i have is some intel one..heres a link

Not sure if this is the actual motherboard because i cant find it... i knwo that it is a MicroATX, ddr800 is the memory standar, or 600...it has onboard audio, with Surround sound so theres 5 or 6 ports for audio, does not have a hdmi plugin..and does not have a external sata plugin..supports the processor i posted below

i have ddr2 1066 hyperx 4x 1gb quad channel

problem is my bios is locked..im not sure if i want to flash...and im pretty sure my ram is good for OCING and my fan probably could get it up to 3.2 stable im thinking..any suggestions? unlocking bios..etc.

If u are more of a technical user u could go into the case and there should be either a jumper or battery. Take it the battery out for a few minutes or change the jumper (should say in mobo book) and the bios should be reset

I'm pretty sure you can't unlock the Intel boards bios'. Are you certain it is an Intel board? It will be written on the pcb (printed circuit board) itself, you should be able to find it quite easily.

The memory is OK for overclocking, I have it in my Q6600 box, what speed is it running at now? (cpuz will show it)

Best way to find out if your BIOS is locked or not is simply to go in there and have a look around. If it is, then you will need a new motherboard if you want to overclock.
