compatible logic boards late 2011 and mid 2012 model A1286

Is it possible to replace the late 2011 MacBook Pro 15" logicboard 2.4 GHz i7 with the mid 2012 MacBook Pro 15" 2.7 GHz i7 board? Any experience shared on this subject would grately appreciated.

Specifications shows difference:

  • 2 USB 2.0 and 2 USB 3.0

GPU difference as below:

  • 2.4 GHz A1286 Early 2011 to Late 2011
    • Intel HD Graphics 3000 (384 MB shared)
    • AMD Radeon HD 6750M (1 GB dedicated)
  • 2.7 GHz A1286 Mid 2012
    • Intel HD Graphics 4000 (384 MB shared)
    • NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M (1 GB dedicated)

A person already answered parts of different years cannot be swapped (thanks, originalmachead ...just curious if someone actually tried)

Replacement for late 2011 MacBook Pro 15"

Still looking for a way to upgrade my old MBP (make it turn on again as it got more issues than just logic board)

Well... I can tell you the 2011's & 2012 models are the basically the same. The issue you face is the LVDS cable connection on the logic board as for some reason Apple used a slightly different version of the same connector between the 2011 and 2012 models. The issue is the width of the cable's connector tang is slightly larger in the 2011 models.

So... going the other way you are trying to go (2011 to 2012) you need to either replace the LVDS cable or carefully file the edge a bit. In the direction you'er going you'll need to replace the cable as there is the risk of the connector to short across.

Otherwise you can swap the logic boards!

@danj FYI I did the 17" MBP Late 2011 to 2012 board last week. No problems with the fit but having charging issues, don't know if it is the board but putting a new mag-safe board in tomorrow. May have to ask a question on this.

из

@mayer - Haven't tried swapping the logic boards around on the 17" models. I don't remember there being a 2012 model. But all of the MacBookPro8,3 should swap about with out any issues.

из

@legendary10k Erik, were you successful in doing so, including replacing the LVDS cable?

из

@radgravy - I'm running a converted system now! I've done a few conversions for a few people as well.

The only issue as I stated before is the LVDS cable tang is a bit wider so you need to sand the edge down a bit. Apple used a different vendors connector which is pin compatible but for some reason is slightly smaller than the cable end connector.

@danj Thank you good sir!

@danj I have an early 2011 15" high-res screen. When choosing a 2012 logic board should I purchase a retina or non-retina model, or does it not matter? I do understand that I'll need to file the edges of the LVDS cable. Thank you.

The screen you have is from 2011 Unibody system (MacBookPro8,2) and can fit 2012 unibody system (MacBookPro9,1). Retina systems came out in late 2012 as such it will only work on another retina system it was designed fit.

Not sure I follow what you're upto here. You'll also need the rest of the system as well.

из

Thanks, that was exactly the info I've been searching for. I'm swapping my failing 2011 logic board with a 2012.

из

I have the same MacBook Pro 2011 15" with the high-res screen that I would like to turn into a 2012. Were you successful? If so did you replace the LVDS connector or file the connector?

из

I've done over 20 now, I just file the tang so the 2011 display cable will fit the 2012 board. Haven't had anyone have any problems. Its a lot less work!

GRACIAS @danj Genial! El resto de componentes: ram, bateria, disipadores de calor, ecc, es completamente igual entre la mbp 8.2 mid 2011 y la early 2012? Gracias por tu ayuda!!

THANKS @danj Great! The rest of the components: ram, battery, heat sinks, ecc, is it completely the same between the mbp 8.2 mid 2011 and the early 2012? Thanks for your help!!

из

Depending on where you buy the logic board it will likely come with the heatsink. Even still you likely want to refresh the thermal paste don't over do it! A little goes a long way.

The battery is the same, but the SO-DIMM's are different!

@mayer I want to do this conversion as well, as I want to stick to my 17 inch screen. I would really appreciate if you could share details on your conversion, especially the logic board you used. Were you able to fix the charging issue? Thx in advance and kind regards

Alguien puede compartir una imagen del conector que hay que limar para cambiar el motherboard a1286 mid 2011 por un a1286 early 2012? Con solo cambiar el motherboard y conectar todo ya funciona o hay que hacer algo más? Yo tengo pantalla de alta resolución antiglare en mi macbook pro 8.2. Gracias.

Can anyone share an image of the connector that needs to be filed to change the motherboard from a1286 mid 2011 to an a1286 early 2012? Just changing the motherboard and connecting everything already works or do you have to do something else? I have a high resolution antiglare screen on my macbook pro 8.2. Thank you.
