    HPE Epyc 7002 Upgrade Kits vendor locked or not?

    Good evening, I am currently shopping for an Epyc 7002 series CPU and saw that some of the HPE upgrade kits end up being a bit more affordable than plain Epyc CPUs but I (very vaguely) remember some vendors vendor locking the Epyc CPUs one way or another. Does anyone know whether that's the...

    Intel DC P4510 SSDs good for a home VM / Nas System?
