comment Xeon X5550 vs Six-core Opteron for database server
You're right, and I agree -- but I did the disk part first. Disks are 15K RPM SAS, RAID10 for data, and separate dedicated drives for system, swap, and tempdb. This question I was trying to concentrate very specifically on what CPU would be better, assuming all else is equal and optimized. It's a tough enough question as it is, it would be many magnitudes harder if I were also asking for advice on disk, server config, etc..

As bad as I feel saying this, I'm really not concerned about energy in this application. It's a server going in a datacenter, I don't really have to think about it beyond that.

No audio on SIP is a fairly common problem, caused by NAT firewalls. Google "SIP no audio", or try asteriskguru.com/tutorials/…
