I have 2 1TB WD Black HDDs in a USB 3 enclosure in RAID 0 (hardware RAID). When the docking station is connected to my computer with the short USB cable it came with, it consistently gets around 360MB/s in benchmarks.

The drives are noisy though, and I'd like to move them away to the lounge which will require a fairly long USB cable, around 10m in length (around 33').

I know that I'll need an active (powered) cable, but what cable should I get in order to maintain fast speeds? I will be installing games on that RAID 0 volume so speed is very important.
