With Adaptive Mode, you don't set the specific voltage that you want in Windows, Adaptive allows the adoption on the top of what the Intel SVID (i.e.The Intel voltage rule to compensate the difference in CPU Ratio and CPU Turbo Ratio.) defines during production. The point of it is that it allows you to run a low voltage under idle and then under load the voltage increases and maintains stability. The benefit is power savings at idle without dropping CPU clocks like EIST would.

When working under adaptive, it is trial and error finding the right settings because you cant really predict how much extra voltage you get under load (for example you get more at higher volts). If you are looking for 1.1v load then start at 1.00 and a small offset and see where that puts you at load volts and work from there.
