That’s why it’s best to just call and get what you want vs build online. And you’ll get a better deal.
As long as you’re not going over 100% (like say, MSI’s coolerboost does), I doubt it would be that big of a deal. I’m not sure what the lifespan...
When flashing BIOS fans get the full 12v. Otherwise, your laptop is trying to stay quiet and just keep heat manageable. You can just override fan...
MacBook is indeed soldered. iMac is DIMM though.
Generally screens aren’t easy, user friendly upgrades, but provided the connection is the same/compatible and it still physically fits, it’s no sweat.
