    After $22.20 for shipping its about $10 less then NE when on sale. Not bad

    I think the OEM thing is just that its not a complete system

    OEM can mean different things depending on the product.

    Looks like a great deal... wish I had waited a week before, I would have jumped on this. Not sure why they call it OEM, perhaps it doesn't come with the MFG box???

    Maybe it's just the case alone? No accessories? Like when you buy an OEM dvd drive. LOL
    I so badly want to grab this one but i'm afraid there's a twist that i am not going to like.

    In this case OEM might mean that you are not buying it from Corsair, so there will not be any accessories and/or warranty from Corsair themselves. Or it could refer to the company that acquires a product or component and reuses or incorporates it into a new product with its own brand name, thus the reason it's titled "OEM Vengeance Series C70 White" instead of "Corsair Vengeance Series C70 White". Heck.. I wouldn't even be surprised if this case didn't lacked the little Corsair logo emblem on the front panel :p (even though it's shown in the pic). I wish TigerDirect would list more details of their OEM products so these questions on sweet deals like this one could be settled.
