iMac RAM Upgrade through motherboard replacement

Texte:

Hello. I recently bought an iMac (was a bit of low-funds emergency purchase to replace MacBook that died on me) and realised that RAM is not upgradable on 21,5 models and i'm basically stuck with base 8GB.

I'm not really hurrying to sell this one and get a better one even though it might be, maybe, an easier option.

So i had a thought - in theory, would it be possible to get hands on iMac motherboard for same iMac model as mine, but with more RAM (16) soldered on it and replace mine with that one doing a sort of RAM upgrade by that, or there are some problems this procedure might result in?

(The tricky replacement procedure itself doesn't count as the problem)

Appareil:

iMac Intel 21.5" EMC 2889
