Asus P8 Z77-vlx gpuboost switch

I just built a new box with the ASUS P8 Z77-vlx and read about this GPU boost switch / jumper. I understand how to enable it on the MB, but do I need to change anything else.

And is it advisable to even mess with it in the first place...

Do you see any difference?

Can you harm your MB?

I belive it just effects the onboard video

any and all input welcome...

  1. Mobo features should be explained in the manual it came with
  2. This is just what the book says, only thing I can find in the manual:

    2. GPU Boost switch
    Turning this switch to enable will automatically optimize the system for fast, yet stable clock speeds. (and than shows a picture of were it is located on MB). Tends to leave alot room for the imagnation.
  3. Yeah I wouldn't mind a solid answer on TPU and GPU Boost, it is very vague in the manual and online.
  4. I just read all I could find out about it in manual. Bottom line is it over clocks ???
    I just am to scared to use it, fear of burning cpu or video up.

    Would be nice to hear from others that may have tried it!!!
  5. Every time I try to boot with it on, I can't.
    However suing the onboard software and some BIOS basics here are the results I'm getting.
    i7-2600(no-K)@3.9ghz nice and stable
    HD7750 DCSL 1GBDDR5@ Maximum "Game" setting 850mhz on the clock, with voltage tapered to 995.
    And things
    BEAUTIFUL and lighting fast. I did however have to leave behind the SSD Acer built onto my old Q65 mobo (twas a derp to buy, but I got it for like 75 bux) so no Intel Rapid stuff yet...
