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.
Yeah, I've found a way to "control" the max voltage in windows by simply using the - with offset. It seems like the "basic max" in windows is 1.169 volts and if i for example put 0.020 volt with the - (minus) offset it goes down 20-25.
