I would like the CPU to be at a lower voltage level during idle, 0.600V or 0.800V for example, and be at a high voltage level during load which would be at around 1.420V for my I7-11700K that’s being overclocked. I’ve tried getting this by changing the voltage mode, enabling many power saving features in the BIOS such as C States & Intel Speedstep, and setting the power plan to Balanced in Windows 10 but I have not been successful. The CPU still idles at around 1.390-1.400V with a voltage mode of Adaptive and goes up towards the 1.420-1.430V range during stress tests with Realbench and reaches something even higher than that when stress testing with OCCT.

These are some of the current settings that I’m using. Bare in mind that the overclocking has not yet been finished.
CPU Core Voltage: 1.420V
Core Offset: +0.030V
CPU System Agent: 1.300V
CPU VCCIO: 1.300V
CPU VCCIO 2: 1.350V
CPU Clock Ratio 4.9Ghz

Specs:
CPU - i7-11700K
MB: Gigabyte Z590 UD AC
PSU: Corsair RM850X
GPU: RTX 3060
RAM: G.Skill 4x32GB

not auto, but a manually switch profile in throttlestop
I’m not quite sure exactly what you are referring to but on the i7-7700K CPU I had previously I’m pretty sure that I had Turbo Boost enabled in the BIOS. With that processor I got the voltage down to 0.600V during idle and 1.225V during load which is something similar I want happening with my new i7-11700K processor.
