I want a long TB 3 cable preferably 1.5meters or more ( maybe 5ft ) that can carry full 40gbps and not mess up game play etc at high resolutions.

i think 2 meters is the standard "long" length. of course it gets tricky for full power delivery and demanding uses have even caused some cables to break from overheat. there is already a thread somewhere here discussing this. cal digit and akitio were popular i think.
