Question Dressing Cables! GAWD

I have this thermaltake power supply that has tons of molex cables, and they're really long, plus the wires are really stiff.
I'm using a fairly small case (Antec Super Lanboy), and I need some tips on dressing cables.

Thanks,

Check out www.xoxide.com for some cable sleeving. If not get some regular zip-ties and zip it all together. A lot of guide out there, just search it up on google.

I dont know how much zip ties are going to help, because I got like 3 long molex strings hanging out of my empty drive bays, but they wont compact further. If I cut a string out, will it affect anything?
