Question SHOULD I UPGRADE MY 2012 MACBOOK PRO 15" LOGIC BOARD?

So I got an old 2012 Macbook pro laying around collecting dust. At the time I purchased it I had it all pimped out to the max with ram, board, the biggest hd, you know, with whatever could be upgraded from the Apple Store, and I paid a hefty price for it regretfully.


Anyway, I'm pretty sure the Logic board went out in it 6 months ago when I was installing High Sierra. When I upgrade to the newest OS or reinstall HIGH SIERRA it cuts out at the very end of the install, and sometimes the screen doesn't always turn on when I reboot (pure blackness). At the time it happened I took it to two different Apples "genius's" and one thought it was the Logic Board while the other had no idea.


So I was wondering if I could replace the current board with a newer version, like lets any board from 2013-2018? Or should I just eBay it for parts? I feel like I can upgrade the SSD and logic board it can still hang out for a while longer.


Any ideas?
