My System Specs


Unless your board has insane amounts of high quality VRM, (which 99% of boards do not) you'll never be able to control your voltage as precisely as you are trying to do. What you're seeing is perfectly normal, in fact it's quite impressive that you're able to get that kind of precision with an matx board.

The "adaptive" mode on your mobo is probably just a combination of power savings and some sort of load line calibration. (board gives more voltage when CPU is stressed to improve stability) You want to disable this when you're stress testing a new overclock. You can re-enable it later for power savings.
