Setting your vcore on Auto and o/cing is not actually over clocking at your stock voltage, your motherboard would most likely be throttling the vcore to stabilise the machine. To ensure you are managing well you should have this set at a defined voltage, and increase your cpu's speed until you loose stability, then give it a little more vcore.

Are you stress testing your system with prime95 or similar software to ensure stability?
