    I have a 13" mid 2012 macbook pro non retina and i would like to change its fan.

    Will a retina fan work? and is it better in terms of cooling than the regular non retina one? And also can I replace the back cover with a retina one?

    Thank you

    No.
    Both are different sizes plus the bottom cover has a slightly updated design for a better cooling sistem.

    It doesn't seem to cool better, it just has less pitchy noise.
