Yes. Just follow the normal colour code. You know :
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Better Buy Resistor Or Your Grid Bias May Go West

Odd... I've crimped dozens of connectors in the vice and had no problems.
If it's a connector with exposed pins, like those DIL transition headers,
I put the pins into a pluigblock type of 'breadboard' first. It's about
all seid breadboards are useful for...

Why not? In one of my H960s, I have the 11/45 CPU with it's PSUs (bottom
3 bays). Then an RX02 -- that doesn't obstruct the cooling to the CPU
from what I've found. Then an RK05, but you could put an RL there. On top
is the RK11-C controller at the front and its H720 PSU at the back.
