    Thumbs up Wasabi DX - Argon 2 - Wiikey 2 - D2Pro

    Which chip is the best? And what are the differences?

    EDIT: All information bundled can be found at MoD ya' Wii FAQ and helpfull reviews at ISO-420

    • Wasabi DX
    • Argon 2
    • Wiikey 2
    • D2Pro


    They all do the same, they play "backup" games.

    But what about channels and free apps (argon 2), internet update (argon 2) dual core (wasabi dx bios 2), read speed, etc.

    Besides the basics, the chips offer different extra options. Which?

    The chips are for all versions of Wii, but which chips can also be used if you have epoxy? Not that I have, just a question.

    If you have wii bios 4, do you have a problem with the extra options, like software and channels? I know there is no problem with playing backuped games.

    I like to know which chip is the best and why. Give a good reason, not just "wiikey 2 is the best", I like a "but" or "because" in the answer as well.

    Mike

    Well, there's a lot of info on all of them here on Wiihacks, but all of them except DX need to be clipped or soldered on to the chip.

    So if your chip is covered in epoxy your only choice is a drivekey-type solution, that connects to the dvd ribbon cable. Wasabi DX is one of those, but there are others too.

    As far as I know they all work, but you can always check the reviews and feedback here on Wiihacks.

    The dvd ribbon cable ones are limited to 3x read speed.

    The DX can also be installed with solder or a clip(with Firmware 2.0 Beta) for the functionality of the zero. So you can get the best of both worlds not that one would switch back and forth on whim it just allows for more options with one chip.

    Not if the chip is covered by epoxy though

    At the moment I like to know the differences between Wasabi DX, DriveKey and Flatmii. All drivemods. Does anyone know some details?

    Well when you ask for the best it really is subject to opinion. What features are you looking and what do you really need from the chip? A chip can have have all the bells and whistles in the world but if your not gonna utilize them you can cut your options down a bit and make searching a bit easier.
