it will still work as long as none of the wires touch each other. (like the metal inside not the insulation obviously)

stagger the lengths by snipping, and wrap once in electrical tape. But by no means NEVER open the PSU. The charge the capacitors are holding will kill you or at the very least send you to the emergency room from serious burns.

As long as you're careful you're fine; I've opened several PSUs (at least 1 of them on multiple occasions) and have never been shocked. When I want to remove cables, I prefer to do it internally because it looks neater; same goes for sleeving the wires. I've got 1 PSU that I use for powering my pump while filling/bleeding my H2O loop, testing fans/lights, and powering external drives; over the years I have removed all the wires except the Molex (jumped the PS_ON to Gnd internally) and then added a SATA power harness (that I had previously removed) and sleeved the wires.
