Change a 2009 LogicBoard into a 2008 Version. Please help

Hallo,

My Name is Jonas and Iam from Germany. So please try do keep your answer in simple english ! :)

First of all i have to say, that Iam well known in assembling technical instruments. But i have no experience in following thing:

I got an iMac 20" LATE 2008 A1224 (with 2,4Ghz Core2Duo) for a very good price !

I find out, that its just able to build in only 6GB RAMS DDR2! I also think, that the Graphics Card isnt well for me.

But I wish to add 8GB in DDR3 with better graphics.

On the Internet, I found a LogicBoard from EARLY 2009 iMac 20" A1224 (2,66GHz Core2Duo) with Nvidia GeForce 9400 Graphics on it (Part-Nr. 820-2347-A).

It seems to be no problem to swap the 2009 Board into the 2008 iMac. Visually both boards look fine similar to each other. So can somebody help me with those 2 questions i have?

1. Is it possible to swap the 2009er board into the 2008er iMac or will it cause damage? May you explain your reason, you have? Give a tipp ?

2. What happens, if i choose to put 8GB into the 2008er Version? Will it cause damage or just 6GB get recognized ?

I would be very proud of an answer, so that i can work it !

Thanks, Jonas

I don't think you can the USB/Firewire ports won't line up and neither might mounting screw holes through the boards.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.

'Ich glaube nicht, du kannst der USB - Firewire-Ports nicht antreten und weder Macht Schraubenlöcher durch die Bretter.

Wenn diese Antwort ist akzeptabel 'denken Sie bitte daran, zurückzukehren und sie zu markieren'.
