It so happens... HP DL785 G5 (8x8384)
It so happens that I had the opportunity to play with an HP DL785 G5 server this weekend. The HP DL785 G5 came with 8x AMD Opteron 8384 (@2.7GHz) and 256GB of HP Memory.
I ran the memtest86+ benchmark on it and the result is as follow : HP DL785 G5 with 256GB memtest86+
I also ran the universe-cli PTS benchmark on it. And the results can be seen on the following URL. PTS Universe-cli on HP DL785 G5
