    Hi guys

    I've upgraded my HDD to an SSD, and upgrade RAM from 8gb to 16gb. I did the upgrade myself as I'm a techie and confident when taking things apart.

    First question is did upgrading void my warranty? (I'm in the UK) as there seems a lot of confusion on this matter.

    Second question I ran GeekBench after upgrading and got the score of 7730 does this seem right? SSD is 256

    Would appreciate any advice.

    Hay

    SSD's do not improve GB scores

    Ok does RAM? As I doubled the original...

    Is 7730 about right?

    Any info with regards to the warranty questions?

    Are you 100% sure? A friend phoned apple care and they said if you undo the MVP you void warranty, but I've read in so many places that upgrading HDD and ram is ok and doesn't void warranty...

    You would think the apple care guys would know what they are doing..

    How is my GeekBench score with 256 SSD and 16gb of ram, I have the core i7 13" mid 2012 mbp

    The hard drive and RAM in the classic MacBook Pro are classified as user serviceable and changing them does not void the warranty. Now if you damaged the SATA cable during installation, that wouldn't be covered, but simply swapping the parts out is fine.

    Good Geekbench score, but upgrading to SSD and RAM don't impact much, if at all.
