Mid 2011 iMac EFI Chip Swap Question

テキスト:

The motherboard on my imac went bad so I purchased a complete motherboard on ebay. Same model but an i7 processor rather than the i5. Except that when I got it I found out its EFI locked and it's a mid 2011 so the ram trick won't work. I have read through how to reprogram or clear the password on the chip but thinking it will be easier to just swap the unlocked chip on my old board to the new. Because it's the same model and the serial number on the old board is mine and it's trash i shouldn't have to do any programming that way right?

Thoughts?

デバイス:

iMac Intel 21.5" EMC 2428
