Logic Board Upgrade, MBP 13" mid-2010 to MBP 13" mid-2012

Hi all,

I am wanting to upgrade the logic board on my MacBook Pro 13" (Mid-2010) with the one from the MacBook Pro 13" (Mid-2012). Both laptops have the same model number (A1278). By upgrading, I wish to increase the processor speed, maximum RAM, graphics capabilities, thunderbolt and have USB3.0 capabilities.

Essentially I want to put in this:

MacBook Pro 13" Unibody (Mid 2012) 2.5 GHz Logic Board

(although I'd try to find the i7 2.9GHz model)

And remove this:

MacBook Pro 13" Unibody (Mid 2010) 2.66 GHz Logic Board

Does anyone know if this upgrade would be possible? Would the new board fit correctly into my old MBP body (screw placement etc)? Will all the other connections will be the same (LCD, Battery, Fan, SuperDrive etc etc) or will I need adapters/converters. If so, it wouldn't be worth it. But If the two boards are directly interchangeable without any serious problems, this could be a nice upgrade and would breathe a few more years of life into my laptop!

Thanks in advance for help!

We get this question alot. You will notice that we spend a lot of time checking 100% compatibility. So for what you're trying to accomplish, the short answer is no.

The long answer though, makes it seem as though it could work.

All of the ports line up, batteries are the same. I would look through our parts list and take note of what parts are not cross compatible. My guess is that most of the issue lies in how the board mounts to the case.

Thanks Scott. I appreciate your answer, and the work you guys do. I had noticed that it was asked a lot, but there never seemed to be any response from people saying if they had done it, and if it had worked.

I assumed if the model number of the boards were the same, they should mount to the case the same way...but never assume anything, right?

I will take a closer look through the parts list and see what I can come up with.

Thanks again!

But if I have a complete 2012 and move over everything into a 2010 housing? Beucase The 2010 housing look like new and 2012 look like !&&*. So use the 2010 housing with complete 2012 internals?

による

But if I have a complete 2012 13" with broken screen. If I move all The internals from the 2012 works perfect and my 2010 look like new. Soo if I move The whole complete internals to The 2010.?

I've looked at many pix, but i need to get my hands on a 2012 board to confirm, but from the photos, they are physically the same, all connectors appear to match, mounting locations appear to match, heatsink is different, but fan location i think is the same, ports appear to be the same. I really want to know for sure myself, and if it works, i will definitely be upgrading to a 2.9 i7. I want the USB 3.0, and am sick of the sata issues that the early 2011 model has. maybe ill fix my screen too..... If somebody knows of or has a logic board from a mid 2012 model, fried or not, I will take the plunge and determine once and for all if this swap is possible!!!! Let's make this happen!!!

Can anyone confirm this for the 13” model?

I am seeing a difference in connectors in the attached picture. Any work arounds?

That's just the DVD drive, right? Not sure what that old connector is, but I'm sure you could order the new cable separately. The connector on the DVD drive should be the same.

による

Nope unfortunately it’s not. I could live without the CD drive. But this particular connector goes to the airport/Bluetooth and subwoofer. The really unfortunate part is that to replace it would mean taking apart the screen and replacing the whole antenna assembly. Aka lots of extra work :(

Doable yes. But not easily.

It will not work. The LCD, Camera and Fan connectors do not line up or are not the same. For more information see...

Replacing logic board with new version?

The replacement year is a little different but it's the same idea.

I can confirm that it is replaceable on the 15" model. The only thing that isn't perfect is the video cable bar that holds it isn't long enough to fold down over the board connection like normal.

what do you mean? the LVDS connector on the logic board? or the cable guide? how did you get around this problem?

による

The cable fits fine into the LVDS connector on the board, what I meant was the display data cable lock doesn't fully "lock". The following picture shows the "lock" I am terribly describing. It has the attached pull tab. https://d3nevzfk7ii3be.cloudfront.net/ig...

による

I just want to confirm this again but you took a 2012 logic board and succesfully mounted it in a mid 2010. 15” mbp ? My logic board is acting up so an upgrade would be welkom.

による

How did you get around the "lock" not fully closing? Does the LVDS cable stay properly secured if its not fully locked? Anyone able to recommend an alternative (non-permanent) method to keep it in place?

による

Alexander, yes I took a NON-Retina 2012 logic board and fit it perfectly in a Mid 2010 15", no changes or modifications necessary to make it fit and it has been working everyday since.

Chris:

Were you able to accomplish the board upgrade? I have the same unit as you described and I have done all I can to improve the speed (16GB RAM, 1TB SSD), and have hit the wall in terms of certain digital audio programs I use for composing music.

Hi Jon,

I ended up not even trying. In 2013 I upgraded to MacBook Air (which I still use today) and sold the MBP. Although looking above at other answers, it seems to be possible.

による

Hello Jon,

I'm in the exact same situation. Mid-2010 MacBook Pro 13" already upgraded to SSD, maxed out RAM and everything but now it's finally getting too slow to handle audio plugins. Upgrading to the 2012 2.9 GHz i7 could be ideal. Did you attempt the swap? Any success?
