There should be a "Monitoring" tab on the bottom left side, click that. You'll see a box with a list of things asking what you would like it to show. Check off everything you wan't (In your case the temps) and set it to "On Screen Display".
I typically set my graphics cards to a fixed % and leave it there. On my 5850's I'd leave them at 44% and even 100% load they'd never get past 80C. Auto is good if you want the temperature to stay relatively constant. I prefer the noise to stay constant.
Not that's it's relevant anymore as I'm all liquid now with the pump and radiator in a closet with the door closed
I never use auto unless it's the only option outside of manual, i usually work a scale that uses less fan at lower temps and only increases in reaction to temp increase, like i guess a lot of other people do, no point in wasting effort when you arent running hot
typically my sapphire fan runs at 7% when i'm just on and not doing anything particularly loadsome, but then the temps are usually anything from 24-33 C idle.
when playing Metro or Deus Ex it gets up to 48 C on load, and using the scale it only goes up as far as 45% fan usage - based on a 100% Fan @ 70 C
