I know the USB IF has a (recommended) max length of (passive) 3.3'/1m for USB 3.1 Gen 2 cable length when used for Data Transfer/Flash Drive use. I know cable quality and maybe even Controllers make a difference BUT,
has anybody experienced a slowdown after 1 meter and how long were you?
The reason I ask is my StarTech 10Gbs hub has a 9 inch C cable + 1.6'/19.2" C extension cable + 12" C extension cable plus a 1.5" adapter to the A female rear port on the back is around 40.7 to 41 inches vs a 39.37" recommended max length.
I know better than to believe 10Gbs is achievable but I'd like to go AFAP.
It will be 3 or 4 days before I put the board together or I wouldn't be bothering people.

thanks,
michael_clyde
