Proliant DL380 G5 Slow CPU

I just acquired a new server and after setting it up it seems slow. There are 2 Xeon Quad-Core 2.0 GHZ CPU's. I have installed a fresh copy of Server 2008R2. When I do the benchmark tests my desktop scores more points. Checked all the firmware updates. Ran Smart Start Diagnostics on ALL hardware. Enabled BBWC and battery on controller is good. Runs the same with or without and added nVidia 512mb video card.
