Actually lowering the gauge size would mean the cables themselves are thicker, as my knowledge standard power supply cables are 18 awg.

Going from 18 awg to 16 awg would decrease the overall resistance in the line as well as increase its maximum current tolerance. I'd go more into details on why this would work however i don't have the time as i'm off to a lab shortly.
