    I dont think that you can but if the boards are identical (Connectors line up, Same power draw) then it could be possible. I would use the same model that came with your computer though.

    Try looking for a tear down on to see if it'll work.

    Hmm... those are both CPUs that were used in the early 2011 model... so you should still be covered by warranty, or not?

    I would expect that the 2.7 GHz logic board works.
