Don't see why not, other than it might be abit dangerous. 

but Don't take my word for it i'm not 100% sure.

There goes any upgradability in the future. Not to mention I'm pretty sure you'd be voiding warranty.

as long as you use electrical tape

Thats that. If you need to get in touch chances are you can find someone that knows me that can get in touch.

Yes. PSU must be completely unplugged while doing this. You will need to use heatshrink tubing to put on the end of each strand of cable to prevent any shortages.

Yes you can if you properly cap the ends of the wires with electrical tape or some other sort of electrical cap and make sure it is unplugged and discharged.

It's fine, so long as you tape off the ends of each wire you cut.

its possible, just make sure you isolate each wire individually. I would advise against it though as it removes any possibility for upgrades in the future

I'm against doing this kind of thing to a non-modular PSU. It's not as easy to fix as plugging in a new cable. why do you want to cut the cables anyways?
