Those look like SATA power cables. Used to power SSDs and HDDs

why cut them off? you risk shorting out your PSU.

for less messy cables, since the HDD bay is just too tight for this many cables in one place, forcing closing the side panel works too.

- They used to power your SSD (unless it's an M.2 one), HDD (unless it's a super old one), optical drive (like DVD player). They only fit on one way

- Don't cut them off. If you don't know what you're doing, you run the risk of the wires touching each other and you're also removing common connectors from a PSU. If you don't use these, just stash them somewhere away in the case.

Have you checked the manual for the PSU?

They look different because you're holding one upside down in your photos. The connector is keyed so that it can only go in one and and so you don't insert it upside down.

What case do you have where you can't fit SATA power cables inside the case?

Jesus, why do people always want to cut off their cables when they don't even know what they're doing. Like that one guy who cut off the "extra" 6 pin connector that delivers power to the GPU.

If you're so concerned with how nice your PC looks, why do you have a cheap PSU with fixed cables with mustard and ketchup wires?

 

You should have bought a modular PSU where you can leave the extra SATA power cables unplugged.
