I have a similar server which is not in production yet. So it hasn't
been tested in a real world environment, but it does not reboot.

You may want to disable HTT since the logical cpu may actually
decrease the overall performance. See 'show stoppers' for the upcoming
5.4 release, there is an issue with 4 cpus and heavy on
