CentOS 7 with kernel version > 3.10?

Got this response from OVH support:

Normally, it shouldn’t cause any compatibility issue, but it's always a possibility. Normally the original Kernel is slower, for this reason that our specialist created a custom Kernel.

all right, I guess I forgot to copy and paste the same line from my first post:

Can I use the official kernel from CentOS? Will it be compatible with the VPS, or worst, can't boot?

You can do whatever you want, it's your VPS which is basically your own computer.

Actually, looks like the cloud VPS is running CentOS 7.0 with a kernel that OVH compiled with all modules linked in.

The latest official CentOS 7.0 has the SYNPROXY module.

So I can't even upgrade my kernel if CentOS 7 has a new one.

What's the reason for OVH's own kernel? Can I use the official kernel from CentOS?

Has anyone running VPS with CentOS tried to install a custom kernel that's newer than the default 3.10? Say 3.18 or 4.x?

I want to install at least 3.18 to get the SYNPROXY feature, but worry that it would not be compatible with the VPS, or worst, can't boot up.
