    So what's the difference between offset and adaptive? To me, it sounds pretty much the same.

    That’s what I was wondering.

    Well, you could try it and see yourself. To me it sounds uncommon as both should be the same.

    Offset makes extra voltage on top of normal, adaptive uses normal base with extra manual final total Voltage.

    So adaptive is ideal and not having extra base + offset.

    If that makes any sense :)

    Well, I'm not a native speaker but it still sounds like the same thing to me?

    A CPU has a default VID at idle and load.

    Example, CPU A has a an idle voltage of .7 and a load voltage of 1.2

    If you use offset voltage and add .200 offset; idle voltage is increased as well as load voltage.
    .9 idle and 1.4 load.

    Obviously it's not optimal to have idle voltage increased.

    Adaptive lets you set a specific under-load voltage with idle voltage unaffected.

    So basically it's a superior method, especially for heat/power consumption/longevity of CPUs life etc

    Oh ok, now I see what you mean. I knew this by the name of "pstate overclocking". My Ryzen setup had this and I really liked it. The perfect thing would be something like the curve MSI Afterburner has.
    I hadn't read about Z370 boards with adaptive voltage settings so far.
