I left it on auto.

I read an article on overclocking and the author said to keep below 70C. For what it's worth, Core Temp was reporting those temperatures before I had even started overclocking.

RealTemp reports the core temperatures as 52-55C

My computer is extremely quiet, but the hard drive is very loud. I can heard it crunching away, writing data. Should my hard drive be audible?

And that is why I add my disclaimers...now does that go for AMD as well? My 5000+ is around 2.6ghz at 49C, no issues bumping the voltages to run it at 3.0ghz where it runs around mid 50s?

I just remember that when i was OCing my 3600+ people were warning me to stay at or below 50c at load.

You should change voltages manually, because the auto function will just result in the mobo cranking up voltage unnecessarily.

Try 1.375V, if its stable then knock it down a notch or 2, if its stable knock it down another notch...etc.
