Apple iMac Mid 2011 GPU Replacement Service
Before I explain about the service here is some useful information about our company, experience & Repair Facts:
Brand New Genuine GPU's -Beware of the fakes!
Genuine AMD GPU's are in very short supply. The market is flooded with fake GPU's. These fake GPU's are actually used GPU's that have a new surface and date code printed. For example Radeon 6970M 2014 Date codes as seen on are fake. Even some repairers are using these without realising. Due to having reliable suppliers at source we are able to obtain Brand new Sealed Packages in large quantities so this means a brand new GPU that has been stored in the correct environment.
Honest Advise & 9 Years Rework Experience
With this much experience you can rest assured that every repair is treated with the same level of expertise. 95% of our income comes from repeat business clients. This really says something about our service. We will always give honest advice. If we think a board or machine is not worth repairing or you may have future problems we will tell you. Warranty returns lose money and customers so if a repair isn't likely to last long we will tell you. Not every machine can be repaired but with a success rate in excess of 98% for original untouched machines it means you have the best chance of success. We can take on machines with repair history but will need to be assessed first to see the condition.
Apple Certified Mac Technician
Every GPU replacement is carried out by a Certified Mac Technician, so not only do we have GPU replacement expertise but the ability to disassemble, re-assemble and service to Apple's strict Standards.
The Repair Service
What is the total cost of the repair?

What models does this cover?
This listing is to repair graphic/display issues relating to the Mid 2011 iMacs with the 6970M fitted.If you have a different machine please get in touch.
How do I know if I have this problem?
If your unit has distorted/unusual graphics, Fan/DVD noises but no display, Vertical/Horizontal lines, Freezing, or Blank Screens the chances are it is related to the Graphics processing unit. If in doubt just ask.
Why does it happen?
It can be caused by excessive heat or just normal use heat cycles. With some machines we often find fans are clogged with fluff and dust preventing the machine cooling how it was designed.
What are you offerding on?
The 'Buy it Now' Price covers the cost of returning your iMac or card back to you in the UK once the repair is carried out. If we cannot repair we do not charge any additional costs on top of the £11.95. Most EU countries the listing will total £24.95 in the Checkout.
What's the Warranty?
The repair offered above caries a 6 month warranty for the same fault occurring if a brand new chipset is fitted. The customer is responsible for all carriage costs.
Why Choose us?
- We don't offer temporary repairs - A reflow or reball of the existing chipset will not last. The GPU fails internally so needs replacement.
- We reball the new GPU in lead solder. This is important as it gives a better connection and causes less thermal stress to the New GPU and PCB.
- We don't use fakes! We only use Genuine AMD GPUs. If you have doubts about a repairer ask them for proof of the factory packaging. There are repairers on who are using fake GPU's as they can be seen in the pictures!!!
- We can provide proof of the replacement and return your old GPU (this is on request please include a note with your package)
