    All of the gray labels are rifle bearing because Hong Hua doesn't make a sleeve bearing anymore.

    Where is it advertised as sleeve and I will have it fixed?

    Are there still simple sleeve bearing fans made??
    Or aren't they phased out right now due to high failure and not really much savings?

    Lots of companies still make sleeve bearing fans. Yate Loon and Hong Shen, for example.

    Well, I cannot say about Hong Sheng, but it is clear that Yate Loon is an OEM that has at least two ODMs working for it.

    Acronyms drive me crazy

    Summary:

    1. ODM stands for original Design Manufacturing, and OEM refers to Original Equipment Manufacturing.

    2. An OEM company is responsible for designing and building a product according to their own specifications, and then selling the product to another company or firm, which is responsible for its distribution. An ODM company or firm is responsible for designing and building a product as per another company’s specifications.

    But most companies that we have heard of do not make their own stuff; others make it for them. The anonymous manufacturers make the stuff that is sold with the "OEM" 's label.

    OK. What should I call them? First, what should I call the manufacturers? The companies that actually build/make the products. They are nameless to us, but the Yate Loons and Corsairs of the world can find them.

    Next, what should I call the people whose brand goes on the product? Your source says "An OEM company is responsible for designing and building a product according to its own specifications" but for most brand-sellers out there, they are "responsible for designing and" having built for them either "a product according to their own specifications" or a product on offer from one of the companies that does in fact manufacture the product. Companies that deal with Seasonic, for example, usually follow the latter model.

    No, you are right. The OEM and ODM labels are not 100% correct. But they are short and mostly correct. Can you do better? If so, we will use your terminology.

    Correct me if I am wrong

    If I contract a company to make my design then it is neither an OEM nor and ODM, perhaps just manufacturer would be the right term?


    Anyhow my only point was to understand what ODM meant (I knew about OEM)

    I simply didn't know that
    ODM = Original Design Manufacturer
    and then found myself lost as to who really did the design.


    It was not meant as a criticism, and I am not normally such a stickler over words, in this case an acronym; and yes, things are complicated and Corsair may rebrand a Seasonic with a few design tweaks.

    Yate Loon makes their own products. As well as products for many others. Not the other way around.
