i believe thats able to control fan speed for fans plugged into the mobo. its not like a rheo in that it quickly turns the fan on/off to acheive different voltages instead of using a resistor to dissipate the extra voltage as heat.

Since the tornado and delta 80 fans require very high voltage/power compared to the slower fans, it isn't advisable to use the mobo header or you'll fry the mobo header.
