ROG Strix Hive cable alternatives

Level 7

I've just bought a ROG Strix X670E-I motherboard, which comes with a ROG Strix Hive. The companion cable for the Hive is pretty short for my need and I'm looking for a longer cable alternative. Can I just use a longer USB cable to connect the Hive to the motheboard? I ask this because the ROG Strix Hive documentation states that the USB type-C plug must be connected in a specific orientation. Thus, I'd like to know whether cable alternatives are possible before spending for a new cable. Thank you.


ASUS confirmed you need to use that cable. I don't know exactly why but I'd advise against buying anything.
A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station…

Is there anywhere I can purchase this specific cable or a cable that will work because normal USB type c cables don't work? As mine didn't come in the box with one so I'm completely screwed without one.
