TPU switch is an onboard overclocking facility which is known for instabilities when you use it for auto overclocking on the Asus P8Z68-V is this true or is the retailer who sold it me trying to fog me off ?

It's sort of true, I wouldn't say it's unstable, it's just not optimal. As in if you use it, you won't be getting your best overclock. All these auto overclocking features overcompensate the required voltages for a stable OC (making your chip run hotter than necessary) and they don't pick the best settings in the UEFI, usually leaving some things that need to be tweaked on "AUTO" (which may result in instability).

If you're looking to overclock I would suggest you forget about the auto overlcocking stuff and just do it manually, it's very simple on your board and there are heaps of guides out there.

I couldnt agree more. 100% spot on. Check out some youtube videos. There is even an owners club thread for your board on this site with fantastic info and loads of people with setups near identical to yours. Half the fun of overclocking is learning to do it yourself.
