Mobo Memory factors?

Hello, I'm building a new pc. I'm going to be using intel, and i've decided on this motherboard:

http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=16950BD9882

The specs of that motherboard say the memory form factor is UDIMM and the memory technology is SDRAM
Does this mean DIMM memory wont work on this motherboard?
What is the difference between DIMM and UDIMM?
Do i have to use UDIMM ram on this mobo?

    If the board is http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8B75M_LE/#specifications, it's DIMM:
    2 x DIMM, Max. 16GB, DDR3 2200(O.C.)/2000(O.C.)/1800(O.C.)/1600/1333/1066 MHz Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory
    Dual Channel Memory Architecture
    * 1600MHz and higher frequency is supported by Intel® 3rd generation processors.
    U stands for unregistered, DIMM is generic.

    thank you very much.
    So i can use DIMM memory at 1600MHZ for best performance?

  4. Yes, you can use 1600 MHz RAMs.
    Check the manufacturers sites/configurators or the ASUS QVL for compatible kits.
