According to that event log event, thread 80 in the system process (ProcessID 4) did something (scheduled a DPC, called a power state function, something along those lines) that caused the system to disable (in code) certain power management features that your processor exposes to the OS that it supports, but Windows has determined that attempting these functions will cause system instability or worse, hardware problems.

I would contact the server vendor for microcode updates (if available) for the CPU, and perhaps a BIOS upgrade as well. If there aren't any, perhaps you should have them investigate these issues on their end to see if they can find the potential hardware problem.
