820-3330 vs 820-3332 SMC


Hello. I don't have any SMC chip for 3330 board, but I have plenty of 3332. 3330 is 15" 2012 non retina MacBook Pro and 3332 is 2012 retina 15" board. Have anyone ever tried swapping one with another and know if it could work? I know that SMCs should ALWAYS be from same board model, but who knows?

I don't recommend that.
Even if boots, weird problems will appear.

If board boots and you have time, can try using rEFIt and flash the correct firmware.
Google will bring you all information needed.
