Sly Custom Cables/Cable Management Question

Hello, I Own a HX850i PSU and would like to make custom cables for it.
I plan on using 550 paracord for my cables to obtain the look I want. And will 550 paracord fit the gauge of wire I need?

Which gauge of wire should I use to safely create custom cables? I hear different numbers, some say 16 others say 18.

Also I own a H115i AIO cpu cooler, But the one thing that bugs me is the Mini USB connector on the pump the connector leaves a mass of cable exposed.

Would it be possible for corsair to develop a wireless mini USB module that can communicate between the USB motherboard header and the pump without the need for a cord? It would set corsair apart from other brands, and without doubt boost corsairs stock. (If corsair hired me I could develop more innovative ideas.) (Contact me for business inquiries via email)

550 is what a lot of guys are using. You can also buy pre-sleeved, connectorized wires if you want to do the molex yourself, or just get custom lengths from somewhere like

Warranty issues aside, plenty of people use 18awg all around and 20/22 for any pins requiring dual cables.
