Introdução

Use this guide to remove the logic board and strip it of all its peripherals: SSD, AirPort, heat sink and CPU, and RAM.

Before beginning any work on your iMac: Unplug the computer and press and hold the power button for ten seconds to discharge the power supply's capacitors.

Be very careful not to touch the capacitor leads or any exposed solder joints on the back of the power supply.

    • With the hinge free to move, the iMac will be unbalanced and hard to work on. Repairs can be completed with the iMac laying down, but are faster and easier with an iMac service wedge.

    • If you are using the iFixit cardboard service wedge, follow these assembly directions to put it together.

  1. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 2, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 2, imagem 2 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 2, imagem 3 %32
    • Starting on the left of the display, near the power button, insert the iMac Opening Tool into the gap between the glass panel and the rear case.

    • The hub on the iMac Opening Tool will keep you from pushing the wheel in too far. If using a different tool, insert no more than 3/8" (9.5 mm) into the display. You risk severing antenna cables and causing serious damage.

  2. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 3, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 3, imagem 2 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 3, imagem 3 %32
    • Use the tool like a pizza cutter—roll it along through the gap, and it will cut the foam adhesive through the center.

    • Be sure to always push with the handle behind the cutting wheel. If you pull, the wheel might get pulled out of the handle.

    • Run the tool up along the left side of the display.

    • Continue wheeling the tool up around the top left corner.

  4. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 5, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 5, imagem 2 %32
    • Cut the adhesive along the top left of the display.

  5. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 6, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 6, imagem 2 %32
    • Continue along the top of the display.

    • You may want to run the tool back and forth through what you've already cut a few times, to ensure you get as much of the adhesive separated as possible.

  6. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 7, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 7, imagem 2 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 7, imagem 3 %32

  7. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 8, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 8, imagem 2 %32
    • Wheel the tool down along the right side of the display.

  8. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 9, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 9, imagem 2 %32
    • Finish pushing the opening tool to the bottom of the right side of the display.

    • At this point, you'll want to run the tool back around the entire display, to ensure you cut as much adhesive as possible.

  9. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 10, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 10, imagem 2 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 10, imagem 3 %32
    • While the opening tool did the lion's share of the work, the display will still be slightly adhered to the case. A plastic card will be necessary to free up the last of this adhesive.

    • Set the iMac face-up on a table.

    • Starting from the top right corner of the iMac, insert a plastic card between the display and frame.

    • Be careful not to insert it more than 3/8" (9.5 mm), or you may damage internal components.

  10. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 11, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 11, imagem 2 %32
    • Gently twist the plastic card to open the space between the display and frame, and cut any remaining adhesive near the corner.

    • Using too much force will crack the glass. Work carefully, and don't try to create a gap any larger than about 1/4" (6 mm).

  11. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 12, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 12, imagem 2 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 12, imagem 3 %32
    • Be sure to stop cutting before the iSight camera in this step, or you may damage it.

    • Slide the card toward the center of the display, to cut any remaining adhesive.

  12. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 13, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 13, imagem 2 %32
    • Put the card into the corner again and let it stay there to keep the adhesive from resettling.

  13. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 14, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 14, imagem 2 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 14, imagem 3 %32
    • Insert a second card into the gap between the display and frame in the top left corner.

  14. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 15, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 15, imagem 2 %32
    • Gently twist the card, slightly increasing the space between the display and frame.

    • As with the other side, move slowly to allow the adhesive to break, and be careful not to over-stress the display glass.

  15. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 16, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 16, imagem 2 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 16, imagem 3 %32
    • Slide the plastic card toward the center, again stopping just before the iSight camera.

  16. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 17, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 17, imagem 2 %32
    • Insert the card back into the top left corner.

    • Only lift the display a few inches—it is still attached to the iMac by data and power cables.

    • With the cards inserted as shown near the corners, gently twist the cards to increase the gap between display and case.

    • If there are any sections that seem to stick and won't separate, stop twisting and use one of the cards to cut the adhesive in the problem area.

    • Begin to lift the top of the display up from the frame.

  18. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 19, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 19, imagem 2 %32
    • While holding the display up with one hand, use the other to unplug the display power cable.

    • Lift the display up enough to have easy access to the connections, but not so much that you stretch the cables and stress their connections (about 8").

  19. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 20, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 20, imagem 2 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 20, imagem 3 %32
    • Flip up the metal retaining bracket on the display data cable.

    • Disconnect the display data cable.

    • This is a delicate connection that can easily be broken. Be sure to pull the display data cable connector straight out of its socket, toward the top of the iMac.

  20. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 21, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 21, imagem 2 %32
    • Lift the display up to a near-vertical position.

    • At this point there is still a strip of adhesive along the bottom of the display, that will hold the display to the frame like a hinge. You can loosen this adhesive by working the display up and down a few times.

    • Remove as much of the adhesive as possible by grabbing it at the outer edges, and then pulling or rolling it towards the middle.

  21. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 22, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 22, imagem 2 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 22, imagem 3 %32
    • Be very careful not to touch the capacitor leads or any exposed solder joints on the back of the power supply (boxed in red).

    • If necessary, a plastic card can be used to cut any remaining sections of the bottom adhesive strip.

  22. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 23, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 23, imagem 2 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 23, imagem 3 %32
    • Be very careful handling the display—it's big, heavy, and made of glass. The display has fragile edges. Avoid lifting the display by the corners.

    • Lift the display up from the frame and remove it from the iMac. Lay the display face down on a flat, soft surface.

    • It may be necessary to slowly lift from one side, to peel against the remaining adhesive.

    • After the adhesive is cut, it cannot be used to re-seal the display in place. Follow this guide when your repair is complete to replace the adhesive strips that secure the display to the rear enclosure.

  23. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement: passo 24, imagem 1 %32
    • If you are replacing the display panel, you may need to transfer additional components from the old panel to the new one. Compare the back of the old display with the replacement display. Note all cables, sensors, and foam cushioning that are missing from the new display.

    • If there is a wire or cable underneath adhesive tape, always pull the tape off first.

    • If the cable is glued to the chassis, use a heated iOpener or a hair dryer to soften the adhesive first. You can then slide an opening pick underneath the cable to loosen it. Never pull directly on the delicate connectors.

    • Slide an opening pick underneath the foam cushion pieces to separate them from the display, and gently pull them off. You may need some double sided tape to re-attach them to the new display.

  24. iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement, Remove the support bracket: passo 25, imagem 1 %32 iMac Intel 27" Retina 5K Display Logic Board Replacement, Remove the support bracket: passo 25, imagem 2 %32

Don't forget to use a ESD Wrist Strap and or ESD Mat; you can fry components by touching the wrong surface or part; don't find out the hard way.

I wonder if its possible to install a newer(2017) Logic Board with a better GPU,CPU and faster USB Ports into my late 2015 iMac 5k.

I mean, to buy one costs around 500$, why not to swap it out and sell the 2015 Board. The Upgrade to

a newer GPU and newer System (USB-C, RAM, CPU) may worth the 500$.

After all one could sell the old Logic Board and gain some money back - don´t you think it is a good deal?

After the Upgrade I could finally use the TB3 for eGPUs and all other Benefits of the newer iMac Board.

I know, I would have to deal with the Ports and do some work on the Body of the Mac, but if this is the only problem, then I

think it is manageble. What I really do not know is wether the 2017 Board will fit in the 2015 Body or not, and wether the power supply is the same or not.

Thank you for Answers, I hope there will be some.

I’d like to know the same thing. Theoretically it’s possible but sounds very weird to be that none tried or ask the same thing. I’d be a very bad thing for Apple
