Thanks Peter !

I was not aware of the hidden "CTRL-A" feature on RBSU, so I never met
these configuration settings ("Service Options" added in main menu)

I already was in "Power regulator mode : Static High mode"
QPI Link power management : Disabled

I have latest released I24 BIOS
DMI: HP ProLiant BL460c G6, BIOS I24 01/29/2011

1) I disabled "Power and Utilization Monitoring" _and_ "Memory
Pre-Failure Notification"

Still I got the 'MSR 38d is 330' error

2) I then disabled Intel Turbo boost

Same error

3) Minimum Processor idle Power state
From C1E-State --> No C-states

Same error

Tricky isnt it ?
