No, not really they are from Intel and should work on any Motherboard with a VROC Header.
I just know a lot of X299 Dark Members are looking for them.
Better than the few hundred I have seen on eBay.
I got mine when EVGA first released them and only paid $9.99 each and now $19.99 each.

Beware, This VROC key SKU is only compatible with Intel brand enterprise and professional SSDs, likely not work for other SSDs like Samsung 9x0 series/etc.

If you have question, please post in public forum. I do not reply PMs, so all in community can benefit the answer.

There are a few thread on this but for the most part it is because that is the way Intel wanted it.
Which VROC key do i need to setup Bootable RAID 0 using two Intel 760p M.2 NVME drives?

----> because Intel® VROC on x299 requires the VROCISSDMOD key & additionally X299 system only supports Intel SSDs <----

Frequently Asked Questions About Intel® Virtual RAID on CPU
 
Intel Forums Software Storage Technologies


 
There is 2 versions of Intel® VROC
  • Intel® VROC for enterprise on Intel® Xeon using C600 chipset
  • Intel® VROC for high end user systems on Skylake X processors using X299 chipset
The reason that you are experiencing issues while setting up the raid is because Intel® VROC on x299 requires the VROCISSDMOD key since it is the only key compatible, additionally X299 system only supports Intel SSDs (SM951/961 SSDs and VROCPREMMOD are only supported on the enterprise version of Intel® VROC using Intel® Xeon).
Please find a FAQ file for Intel VROC on x299 systems
 
 
This has some good info:
