Is it possible to replace the late 2011 mbp 15" logicboard 2.2GHz core i7 with the mid 2012 mbp 15" 2.3Ghz core i7 board?

You can not change model years.

There was some discussion in the 2012 MBP area about doing this, but there was no conclusion that it could or could not be done. Do you have any definitive info or reasoning/explanation to back up your conclusion? Thx, Fred

The body for both the 2011 and 2012 mbp models are the same, they all use the older magsafe plug, i think it is possible to change the logic board.

Jaychau1997 & Fred Turner-the parts catalog disagrees with you. My first link shows the '12 boards as being compatible with only '12 boxes...'' the early '11 and late '11 will swap with each other but not with other years'''

In fact it can be done!

But! You do need to either replace the LVDS cable as the 2011 is slightly larger than the 2012 version.

Or which is better and cheaper answer is just file the cable connectors fiberglass tang ever so slightly!

I’ve done a few of these and the system I’m typing on right now is a converted 2011
