    My thought on this is why bother with a modchip and spend the money and risk hosing your Wii because your soldering iron slips... when softmodding is easy, free, and works! Modchips are so 20th century. ha!

    most of the decent chips are all solderless so your point becomes invalid.

    Solderless Chips are reversible, homebrew can be detected by nintendo. Chips are low maintenance.

    like the dude said above, if your hacking your wii, who gives a shit about your warranty its most likely not valid. Want to keep your warranty, buy your games.

    The only people that can't softmod with ez are idiots.

    If you're comfortable cracking open your case and putting in a modchip. Get one.

    If not, or you're just cheap. as long as you're literate and can follow directions, go softmod.

    heh a small battle between chip and soft mods.im not afraid to open up the wii or solder but it seems people have told me the wasabi dx chip seems the best with the clip also which is solderless so that would make it easy anyway.im ordering one tomorrow to throw it in my wii seems the best way now.

    It appears that the modchip vs softmod is just another Coke vs. Pepsi argument.

    ugh dont remind me coke runs through my body and im trying to stop drinking it. anyway back on topic sent an email to modchip-depot asking if my wii would be good for the wasabi dx/clip bundle want to make sure before i spend the cash put in my # and got a * There is a 75% chance the chipset is GC2-D2C2 (v2) and the drive has the new metal clip.
    * And there is also a 25% chance the chipset is GC2-D2C (v1).

    which draws me a blank since im not sure if thats good or a kick in my ass anyone else have a wii that said the same?
