Pretty sure you aren't going to get ACC unlocking on a server board.

Whatâ€™s more interesting, though, is power efficiency. Performance per watt isnâ€™t ideal at AMDâ€™s 3.2 GHz stock speed. We found that a slight overclock to 3.4 or 3.6 GHz doesnâ€™t require much voltage increase, nor does it change system idle power. But it does provide a decent performance bump at peak load, which has the processor deliver more overall performance per watt. The side effect is that the six-core Phenom II X6 will then always be faster than the Phenom II X4 965 at 3.4 GHz. Surely, you can't lose there.
