Take a look at most of the CPUs listed. They're not even manufactured anymore. There's no reason to expect a brand new server given the specs, and certainly not at those insane prices.

Most of the hardware SYS sells is EOL now so won't be sold by the manufacturers anymore, so yes that could be why the one's with older hardware are rarely in stock.

I had the E3-SSD-2 by the way, and two of the drives had ~23000 hours power-on time. Fast approaching 3 years continuous operation. No thanks. Why the setup fee? Yes, I'll pay 50 quid and get someone's crappy 3-year-old continuously-used darn-right ancient SSDs. No doubt the retort would be "but you get *three* drives!" Completely pointless and useless in my case, don't need the extra storage, wouldn't use software RAID-5 anyway, would much rather have a pair of S3500s.
SYS and Kimsufi are more budget for a reason, the hardware is very much more likely to be used. You'd need to buy from OVH directly for brand new (ish) hardware, support has told me previously that all drives delivered with OVH servers are no more than 6 months old. From personal experience, all OVH servers I've had have had brand new drives.

It seems you will only get guaranteed hardware from OVH and not SYS, if you're wanting guaranteed hardware or better hardware, you're going to have to pay for it. Even though OVH is more expensive than SYS, OVH is still a lot cheaper than most other providers with similar specifications.

Hi

This is correct, the exact hardware of the server will be variable depending on the time of order. It is only possible to guarantee the hardware specs but not the exact model number of the hardware used.

If you're running Linux of some kind, hwinfo should tell you all you need to know. (you may need to install it first).
