The A1465 is an 11" machine and the A1466 is a 13" machine.

If you take a closer look at these two logic boards, you will see they are very different. Open both of these links in separate windows and compare: MacBook Air 11" (Mid 2012) 1.7 GHz Logic Board

MacBook Air 13" (Mid 2012) 1.8 GHz Logic Board
