Proper Cabling for a 2 3750-x switch Stack

I have been looking at the Cisco Hardware docs and I can't find anything on the proper way to setup a 2 switch stack for Stackwise redundancy and Stackpower redundancy. Everything details 3 or more switches. Does anyone have some insight?

You just connect stack port 1 on the first switch to stack port 2 on the second and vice versa for both power and stackwise. The stackwise cables end up looking crossed over each other.

Crossovers (sw1 port 1 to sw2 port 2 and sw 1 port 2 to sw 2 port 1) are probably more common, but at least for StackWise, it will also work sw 1 port 1 to sw 2 port 1 and sw 1 port 2 to sw 2 port 2.  I think StackPower doesn't really care either, as long as you complete one or both rings.

BTW, StackPower has limitations to how much amperage can flow through the power cables.  You need to take into account maximum power draw per switch and where you place power supplies.  This gets a little tricky when you consider a power supply failure.

I just found this. Is the same for 2 2960-s switches?
