TK50 orientation?

The tk50 is nominally fond in the top horizontal slot in the ba123 (there
are 4 of those) and the vertical slot is the RX50. That would be the
factory config as well. Also take care mounting it to the sleds used for
those slots, the metal can short the TK50. Also I have never seen TK50s
run horizontally nor do I think it's acceptable.
