The bad: Some sloppy external wiring mars an otherwise polished system design.

He's referring to the external USB 3.0 cable that goes from the front USB port, inside the chassis, to the back USB 3.0 port. It's something that the chassis comes with , but, we'll try to figure out a way to mount the USB 3.0 cable onto internal header ports. I don't think the P67 motherboards that the ODE system come with have internal USB 3.0 header pins, or if any motherboard actually...
 
Here's a picture of a different chassis, but, it gives you an idea of what they are talking about:

I have to say that ODE USB 3.0 cable doesn't look sloppy like the picture above.

I agree. The USB.30 cable doesn't look that bad on the ODE. Especially since it's black and easily gets hidden due to the routing we do.
Every review has to find some cons or it wouldn't be a real review, just an advertisement.

Interesting! I didn't know about that.

This system does not come with that feature however, as they use the Sabertooth motherboard.
