10Gb/s are coming from the USB-C port. Using the USB 3 Header -> USB-C header adapter you can use the bus of 2 USB 3 ports (5Gbit/s each).
I could test the bandwidth because I have an USB-c external enclosure with an NVME SSD inside.
Aaaand yes! The USB3 header to USB-C works like a charm (10Gbit/s for my USB-C port!).
Instead of rerouting 2x USB3 ports from the back of the mobo, I decided to use a USB2 header -> USB3 header adapter. Basically I downgraded the frontal ports to USB2, but it's not a problem because I use them...
I've just finished my build. I spent 3 hours to find the best routing for all the cables, but the result is great.
The build quality is high (I had several Lian Li cases in the past, the M1 has the same build quality).
As an engineer, I really appreciate several "secondary" features of this...
You can re-route 2 USB 3 from the back I/O shield to the front panel and use the 19-PIN USB3 header of your mobo to connect the USB-C port. This is the recipe I'm going to use for my M1 build.

My case passed through the customs!
I think we will receive it next Monday/Tuesday.
Our batch left Taiwan on 27th. I'd guess our cases are stuck in a container at the airport here in italy, waiting to be checked in.
As soon as they will be processed by customs, we should see tracking updates.
