It does more than degrade, depending on the amount of EMI in the box and the route of the ribbon a little over that length can stop the drives working altogether, which is why the advice arises, not really for performance issues since 100MB/s is an unrealistic figure any way to due to the local bus speed limitations of ATA rate, which determines that currently there is no faster drive than an ATA 66 or ATA mode 2, mode 3 is only theoretical, until the next gen. of boards.
