Unless you know what you are doing I would,nt recommend it, it could be both costly and dangerous.

Just tidy them round the back of the motherboard tray.

you can cut any wire away provided it isnt looped into another wire loom. You must be extremely careful to seal the end of the bare wire with either insulation tape, or (much neater) and you need a bit of skill here, open your psu and tuck your wires back into the unit. Be aware that even the tiniest voltage accidentally pushed through your board is likely to have a dominoe's effect and fry your whole pc. Also think about future upgrades, what you gonna do when you want to add a new periphial and you aint got no power source. The biggest "wire cutters" are modders and your better off checking the site rayuk found for you. Be adventorous but careful.
