I am looking for a similar article, link below, for Dell PowerEdge T410 and Hyper-V.
I have the Virtualization enabled. I came across different school of thoughts on enabling/disabling Turbo Mode and Logical Processor and the C states.

If any one has best practices/tips on the BIOS settings from their deployed solutions I would really appreciate it.

For the T410 you should follow the same pratice as outlined for the R710 above for Max performance.

Enable Virtualization (this is manditory)
Disable PXE and ISCSI boot on NIC's unless its needed
Disable C-States to remove any latency
Disable C1E to remove any latency
Enable Turbo-Mode to utilize max efficency
Set power to Max Performance to utilize max efficeny
