Clear CMOS Switch on asrock z77 extreme4

Hi,


What's the use of Clear CMOS Switch on asrock extreme4 mobo? I'll be getting this mobo next week. I heard that It can be easily pressed when putting USB or HDMI on the I/O panel. If i press it once, what does it do to my motherboard?

Any enlightenment on this might help.
