Can you plug a USB 3 hub into another USB 3 Hub = 7 USB 3 Ports

I need more USB 3 Ports for my External HD's I am testing.  Can I plug one of the 4 Port USB3 hubs into one of the slots on an existing powered 4 Port USB3 Hub and get all working with USB 3 ?

Yes ... USB v3 supports the same distribution architecture as earlier versions.

... by the way, I'd be sure BOTH hubs are powered hubs.    You'll get much more reliable operation from any hub if it's got its own power source.
