Yeah am looking around as well now.

The processor comes without the plastic bracket.
They came out of HP systems.
We never had complains about vendor locks.

Your order will be shipped tomorrow

Here's another 7551 for a similar price in the US.

Does come with a tray but is Dell only.

Edit: What a timing lol.

Servethehome wrote an article about the vendor locking stuff with Epyc some time ago.

You don't need it necessarily, you just need to be EXTREMELY careful not do drop the CPU or something like that.

Yeah that's probably due to the vendor lock as linked by @loggedinasroot

Apparently you can fill in the warranty form and they will send one.
Not sure if it still needs to be under warranty though.
