    WTB: 3rd gen EPYC (Milan) 24+ cores, Supermicro H12SSL (any version, must fit EATX), either 16GB*8 or 32GB*8 Compatible Registered DDR4

    Hey all, I might finally be pulling the trigger on the LONG overdue server upgrade. I'm tired of dealing with potentially scummy sellers on eBay, so I decided I might as well at least ask here first to see if anyone is getting rid of what I am looking for. If that is you, let me know! Not...

I guess this reflects. I have collected some prices of...
