Any way to tell what chip I have?
Any way to tell what chip I have? –
I have an original Playstation (PSX, not a slim PsOne) that my dad's friend installed a mod chip in around ten years ago. It still works to this day and continues to give countless hours of FF VII. The man that installed the chip died a few years ago. However, out of curiosity, I'd like to know what type of chip is installed in it. Every backup of a game I've ever tried has worked on it, whether it was burned with ImgBurn or CloneCD (I always burn at low speeds). Its an NTSC-U/C and I've never tried using a Japanese or Pal game in it. I know the best way to find out is to just open it and check, but I don't know if I have the tools needed to open it. If there is any way to determine this, any help would be appreciated.
I realise this post is a little old now, but regarding opening up the PSX, you only need a normal screwdriver, nothing special. It's very easy to open. Look up some videos on Youtube if you want, e.g. some at https://www.youtube.com/user/jse07.
Thanks for your reply, but I think what the OP (and me) want to know is how to know what kind of chip is inside our PSX. I opened my PSX and my chip says: 12C508/P and it has six wires soldred to it (pins 3 and 5 are unused) but what is it? an MM3? stealth? stealth2? no clue. That's what we need IMHO.
