Will the LCD Screen Replacement Cause Board Damage?

Hello everyone, new here.

So, i have a completely destroyed iPhone 11 Pro Max that i would really like to fix up to avoid it becoming just more e-waste. Question is, i’ve done a bit of research on LCD displays retrofitted onto OLED iPhones and from what i see they usually cause board damage because of more power draw, but i wanted to find out if this magically happens to not be the case with the iFixit display.

Thanks a bunch for all the help!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The issue is on a OLED the backlight pulls more power to give bright displays. however not all backlight leds are created equally so this is something you may want to call ifixit about.
