    I have two Quicksilvers that I took apart awhile back.

    Both are dual-1GHz models.

    The processor boards have five holes in them. I want to be sure I'm putting everything back correctly. I have some standoffs that I think go in the three holes around the connection between the processor board and logic board.

    There is one more place where a standoff will fit.

    But, that leaves the final hole and I'm not sure how to deal with that one. I do have one standoff that has holes on both ends. Am I supposed to use that to fill the gap between the logicboard and processor board on that fifth hole?

    If this doesn't make sense I'll have to post a pic.

    your cpu looks like this one correct?

    That would be the dual 1ghz and the 5th hole on the far left of this picture is the +12v lead for this cpu.
    There should be a standoff on the logicboard and then this board goes into place, then a screw to hold it down.
