 From the product guide:

"Intel Desktop Board DG33FB Product Guide


Hardware Management Features
The hardware management features of Desktop Board DG33FB enable the board to be
compatible with the Wired for Management (WfM) specification. The board has 
several hardware management features including the following:
• Fan speed monitoring and control
• Thermal and voltage monitoring
• Chassis intrusion detection

Hardware Monitoring and Fan Speed Control
The features of the hardware monitoring and fan speed control include:
• Monitoring of power supply voltages to detect levels above and below acceptable
values
• Intel Quiet System Technology fan speed control, delivering acoustically-optimized
thermal management
NOTE
Memory must be installed in the Channel A, DIMM 0 socket to enable Intel
Quiet System Technology.
• Fan speed controllers and sensors integrated into the ICH9DH
• Thermal sensors in the processor, GMCH, and ICH9DH, plus an onboard remote
sensor
• Thermally monitored closed-loop fan control, for all onboard fans, that can adjust
fan speed or switch the fans off as needed"


Doesn't mean much to me.

Anyway thanks for taking the time to respond and keep up the great work.

Regards,
Steve
