I just want to re-state that IMHO, you should never leave it on AUTO. Not only is it wasteful, but it can also cause more damage to your CPU than is necessary. As The Manual stated above, and many other people have noted as well, AUTO does not select the most advantageous setting.
Why push 1.45v through your CPU when 1.3v will do? Especially if you don't plan to replace your CPU soon.....too much voltage can cause early failure of a CPU. And why not take control of your settings anyway? You are already in the BIOS tweaking other settings....why NOT take an extra 2 milliseconds to manually set your voltage and have it under your control?
Just my opinion......
