My internet is screwy right now so i cant check the link, but i would say no. Only use cables that are approved for your PSU or risk frying it and possibly all your components. You could however sleeve your PSU cables yourself, or pay someone to do it for you.

You could just be lazy and get extensions the only part you'll see is the part coming out of the psu until it goes behind the mobo. You could also just do it yourself much more rewarding if you do it yourself imo.
