I want to buy Corsair sleeved cables, but i wonder is there any difference between them and regular Corsair PSU cable? Is there any difference between their wires, efficient, performance productivity at all? Which cables recommend to use ?

Sleeved cables are for esthetics only. They perform no better or worse than standard cables.

Sleeved cables are for esthetics only. They perform no better or worse than standard cables.
I would say "mostly" aesthetics, not "only" aesthetics. They do aid (albeit slightly) in cable management which can aid (again, slightly) with air flow (or at least aid in NOT restricting air flow). And sleeved cables are, IMO, easier to keep clean of trapped dust.

But they have no impact on system performance.
