Does DDR memory default to a lower speed?

I am not sure about dual inline but I know for a fact that your memory will only go as fast as your motherboard is capable of for example I have a Gigabyte GA-7VAXP motherboard and my memory is 400 mhz (PC3200) but my AMD Athlon XP 3000+ has a FSB speed of 333 mhz so my memory defaults to this speed as with AMD processors the memory and FSB speed must be in 'sync' to function properly.
