Just did this today. If I had to add anything, you need a LOT of heat, and a VERY thin guitar pick to get between the glass and the midframe. I had to get the back panel to around 100c before the adhesive would give way, a lot hotter than I usually need to get most things apart (75-80c is the norm). Be careful not to burn yourself whilst you're doing this. Also, a larger battery will fit in here! Apparently S7 batteries can fit in the S6, but do your research online before you attempt this.
I just tried an Nvidia GT230 MXM GPU that was leftover from another system and got the startup sound but a black screen, but it should work in theory. Is there any way around this issue? I guess this is Apple's way of saying "screw you" because it's a non-apple GPU?
Hey guys, I found a Radeon HD5450 1GB in an MXM format for a Lenovo AIO, any idea if it will work on a 2009 27" iMac? I currently have a dead Radeon HD4850 and I don't care GPU performance much, computer is only used for work.
This is the part - much cheaper than the Apple GPUs available: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-DDR3...
Great guide. My question is this however, How does one test this PSU before they replace it? I can't seem to find a PSU pinout for this particular unit (661-7111)
