A quick look around suggests that some of the very high end gaming ones

get one second hand these days and if I remember correctly there are 2
incompatible pinouts for the 10 pin header. :(

I had no trouble ordering new ones late last year.

If you wanted a branded one (!), there's a Lenovo server option with SKU 7Z17A02577 (I don't know about the pinout off-hand, but I have one here I could buzz through if anyone really cared).
