Question about Computers & Internet
You can plug the 4 pin power connectors into different devices in any order. The conectors are rounded on 2 corners and flat on the other 2 corners so you cannnot insert them the wrong way (without forcing them really hard).

If you are talking about the cables from the power supply that are made for each component (Hard drive, video car, CD-ROM, etc.) then yes, they can be hooked up any way that fits the setup you have in your case.
The only real discrepancy is that you have to be sure they are coming straight from the power supply. A lot of components do offer a split connection for when connections are limited, though.
Simply put, make sure that the cable you are connecting to something that is important to your computer (Again, hard drive, video card, CD-ROM (not entirely necessary, I guess,) has a solid connection to the power supply.
Hard drives and CD-ROM drives are interchangeable for the most part, though. You just need to watch that you aren't connecting something to a 'dead end' cable where is won't get the power it needs to operate.
As long as it's a straight connection to the power supply though, and the PS has the wattage to handle it, just go for maximum air flow within the case and keep it tidy.
