that is part of your problem. usually the mobo on auto will give mroe then enough voltage to run the cpu. sure it should be stable but then again it will also usually run way hotter then needed because that extra voltage. this could also explin why your heat jumped a bit. on auto if you raise the cpu speed it starts bumping up the voltage. more and more. verify your volts using cpu-z
best thing to do though is use manual voltage adjustments. that way you are only using what you need and not putting the rest into waste.
also you might need to reseat your heat sinks as I believe you either have too much or too little thermal paste.
