Shroud & decoupling surely helped the airflow of the fan aswell, and better not have too long screws in case it breaks a hole in radiator. I'm still thinking going watercooling my cpu, but i have to see what i would like to have as a result.

Been thinking of WC also but it just cost way to much atm. Seen so many videos on youtube that look so nice. I also want to try to sleeve my own PSU cables but the same there don't have the money to "play" around with to give it a try

Well, my first desktop build (last year) took me more than 6 months to build. It gave me opportunity to take my time at choosing the right components for my needs at the time. I sleeved manies of my cables management before and i've ordered lately braided sleeves cables to do some of it in my case. It is just a matter of time (of course money).

Sleeving cables is rather cheap, sure its time consuming but I got plenty of time on hands so to speak, main issue would be what wire to use seen 18 AWG 22 AWG and 16 AWG and I fail to find what really means or what should be used to what, surely I haven't spent a lot of time finding out as I am to afraid to actually break something when I plug the cables back into the psu. Read one that did a custom 24 pin and he said it took him a week, but it looks sleek as hell as the wires are just long to reach where they are supposed to go and no cable hanging loose

To all those whom have interest in sleeving the individual cables not bundled cables in their computer I hear that the real deal is purchasing paracord in 100' lengths or greater along with heat shrink. You take the paracord and open it's outer sleeve and remove the inner poly cords and then use the outer for your computer. This paracord is available in maybe 50-100 color combo's or solids to match any build.

I was reading an article this morning about sleeving PSU, and the guy was worried about which size of wires he should take.

Most responses from members was to take the highest (but not the biggest) even if it does not help bend the all lot main PSU cable.

Some report aswell that sometimes one ATX plug have two wires...that's mean the first one can't handle the load. Therefore some choose to put one bigger wire instead of two small wires.

there's 3,3v and 5,5v, 12v.

You cant try to refer to this manual, chapter 5.1 HERE

Will read that manual, I was worried if I for say used a 22 AWG Cable it would transfer to much Power because you was meant to use a 18 AWG Cable, but if that's not the case that's a huge relief

It is matter of that cable might melt if the Atx PSU draw too much power. So better use a larger (thick) wire just in case.

PSU makers knows what they do and choose the appropriate thickness for each output, looks sometimes they do use two cables, perhaps to make the main Atx PSU cable more flexible.

I see, and I guess it would be easier to work with a bit thicker wire also, perhaps even look at bit nicer as you would not need 2 wires sticking out
