    I was reading Apple's specs, and of the CPU mounting screws "conducts 12V and could spark if grounded while the computer is on.

    Does the screw ground the 12 volts or do I need to connect 12 volts to the pad?

    I'm trying to see if I can put an 867 daughter card from a Quicksilver in my 466 digital audio.

    What that statement means is that the screw is through a 12v plane and should not be touched with a grounded device or tool while the computer is powered up.

    Ah! So the screw is going through 12V. It's not performing any function such as supplying the 12V or grounding. In fact, if that pad was grounded, it'd mess things up. Correct?

    If that pad were grounded, it would short out the power supply. Yes. it would mess things up.
