Default Wires affect performace/heat

Well the pc I built is full of wires everywhere. Its a complete mess and i dont know what to do with all of them. I would tie them up but they all seem so stiff and cant move much. Theres a huge clump of wires under my gpu. will this affect anything really or does it just look bad

it looks bad and might affect the air flow of the case, this usually cause a slight increase in case temperature

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
