Mid-2012 Hardware Experts Needed
For the past year I’ve been dealing with an issue that has afflicted two separate, 15”, Mid-2012 MBP’s. Same behavior in both machines, however the newer-to-me machine experiences them less.
Reason for persisting: I’m a photographer and require a strong machine. While not the fastest available, the current 9,1 MBP I’m using has proven to be a workhorse (2.6Ghz i7, 16GB RAM, dual graphics cards - NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB + Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB, Samsung EVO 850 + Crucial CT 750MX for storage) and I’d like my next upgrade to be to the newest MBP once they fix the overheating issues.
Issue TLDR: Randomized kernel panics are occuring in both machines. In machine mentioned above, I thought there was something physically wrong the logic board as they would occur more while the laptop was actually on my lap / being moved around. Lately, I’ve been using the the machine in a stable environment and panics persist, though, less frequently of late.

So… I’m looking for those of you who consider yourselves experts on this generation of MBP. I’ve heard varying theories from bad RAM (I’ve swapped between 8 modules, same behavior), to a loose RAM module, to SSD issues (Disk Warrior run on both drives regularly), to this era of MBP having known, bad logic boards.
If you care to weigh in, please do so.
