Upgrade a late 2008 unibody 15'' from 2.4GHz to 2.66Ghz

For context, my logic board died (overheated after installing a new hard drive). It was a 2.4Ghz version of late 2008 unibody 15'' Macbook Pro.

I finally decided to repair it as you can find logic board for about $250 on ebay now and the one I'm looking at is a 2.66GHz logic board. It really looks exactly the same, from a shape a connector stand point so I was wondering if I could just "upgrade" to this new logic board.

Thanks

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Antony,

It will depend on the specifics of the 2.66 GHz logic board. Several MacBook Pro models since Late 2008 were available with a 2.66 GHz processor. If the logic board you are looking at is for an early 2009 MacBook Pro 15" (Model MB470*/A), it should be compatible. Any other model, however, will not be.

Good luck!

Kevin
