Trying to install an 867 proc. from a QS machine in my DA 466. I know that I have to provide 12V DC to the board (Yellow from the power supply, right?) but I'm unclear about where to connect the power to the board. Can you guys point me to a resource on the 'net that covers this project? Thanks much. Grady

Better, I can tell you.
When the daughtercard is mounted on the standoffs ( which are in a delta formation ), you'll notice a fourth dropout in the card. That is where you connect the yellow cable. You can either solder is, or use a bolt and two nuts, with a cateye connector at the end of the yellow cable to mount.
I'm doing the same thing right now, but I think my DA board is faulty, so be sure to let us know if it works out for you.
Previously, I had my QS CPU up and running well on an overclocked Gigabit Ethernet board. With decent cooling, you can get 933mhz easy from that card.

Now we're getting somewhere. I was told that the 12V lead went to one of the three "dropouts" that bolted the board down-- no matter which one. I'll try it as you suggest and bet it'll work. thanks. will report back asap.
It really is just that easy. Anybody who's using a DA machine should investigate this upgrade route. (Just beginning to explore the performance increase, but already I can see a *dramatic* difference.) Thanks, Antonio.
