I think tpu is some kind of automatic overclocking thing, but nobody uses it because you wont get as far with it as manual overclocking, and its probably quite wasteful with voltage. Epu is the energy saving thing. They are turned off and on using switches on the motherboard (on my one at least) and bios settings. Check your motherboard manual for more information on the switches.
Loading the optimised defaults will reset your bios settings to stock. Make sure you update to the latest bios too if you are not already on it.Edited by alltoasters - 10/28/11 at 6:06am
