Any motherboard will have plenty of resistors on it. So what the heck are these colors on them?!? What do they mean, and in what order from top to bottom? Answer: D - First Digit, Second Digit, Multiplier, Tolerance, Qualty BONUS: What does this color represent on a resistor??? (Just shout out the bonus answers.....) __________________
