Which CPU to use for New Unraid Server

Okay, I have an interesting question about selection of CPU for my New (Migrated) Unraid Server.  My motherboard (Supermicro H8DG6) supports Dual Opterons (6000 series).  So over time I have collected a assortment of these (mostly pairs).  I am looking for some guidance on which ones to use.  My current Unraid Server is strictly a Plex server and mass storage for my Proxmox, Desktops and other various servers.  I have the choice of the following Opteron cpu's.

 

6172

6212

6376

 

I will be actively cooling the cpu's and putting in an Nvidia 760GT 1GB video for the Plex server to use for transcoding.  So any thoughts on which one to leverage?
