This is the first psu I have had to have them so wasn't entirely sure but seen that you could, just didn't know if any psus didn't allow it.
On the 24-pin cable there is one pin that isn't actually required. I believe it is called the -5v sense cable. There is one crimp that has 2 cables going out of it. You can cut off the smaller orange cable.

As for caps I have no idea. I make my cables from scratch so I've never actually cut off a capacitor before. I just make the new ones w/o the caps.
