DDR SDRAM is similar in function to regular SDRAM, but doubles the bandwidth of the memory by transfering data twice per cycle--on both the rising and falling edges of the clock signal. The clock signal transitions from "0" to "1" and back to "0" each cycle; the first is called the "rising edge" and the second the "falling edge".

The ram will run at 400Mhz, the motherboard doubles the speed.

Just set the bios to either spd or 200Mhz. It'll be fine.
