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!!!
