Is the water damage to this MacBook Pro's logic board salvageable?

crwdns2893800:0crwdne2893800:0:

Hi everyone,

I recently obtained a water-damaged Macbook Pro for free from a friend. After opening it up, I noticed quite a bit of corrosion on the logic board and the fan.

I've read that removing the corrosion with 99% isopropyl alcohol and a toothbrush can be effective but I'm not sure if the damage is too severe for it to make a difference.

Basically, I'm trying to determine whether or not this repair is a lost cause or if there is any chance at repairing this machine without needing to replace the logic board completely.

I've included some close-up photos of the damage to hear what you guys think. All feedback is appreciated!

Thanks,

Ben
