MAgic KX best slim modchip?!
MAgic KX best slim modchip?! –
Yo I have a few questions, I just recently bought a brand new ps2 slim (70012) And from what i have heard the best modchip out there for it is the Magickx.
1.Is magic kx really one or if not the best modchip for the slim ps2 ?
2.And also is it true that it can prevent lens from being burned , and just to be sure , what other stuff do i need to buy besides the modchip to make sure nothing goes wrong and what are the chances that something will go wrong ?
3.Also can this modchip play back-ups as well ?
Thanks in advance also i would perfer that someone that REALLY knows what he is talking about and experienced then someone who know little or nothing about this stuff.
p.s. I can also ( perferd ) talk to someone in person ( i dont mean RL i mean by irc , aim , yim w/e ) just holla back on how you would perfer to talk since i know little or nothing about this stuff and feel some what un-ease about modchips and stuff.

1. Yes it is a good modchip for slimline ps2.
2. It appears to have a lower burn rate then other ps2's, but it is still suggested you do summones fix.
3.Yes, you can playbackups.
Thanks i whent to this site to buy it from http://***********/store/product.php...cat=268&page=1 but it seems that when i try to check the model no. 70012 , they dont have it , hm any othe rplace to buy it from ?
Also someones fix , havent looked into it , is that something i need to buy seperatly ?
shopatchris.com, bstconsole.com, and robotpig.com are the few places you can buy it from. As for the summ0ne fix, yes, you have to buy it seperate as I've never heard of any vendor that includes them with the modchips (although they are dirt chip); you can find these at radioshack or online stores like jameco.com. Make sure you look at the sticky about summ0ne fix near the top of the thread list about what values to get and where to apply them. The answers are all over the forum, a little search would do you wonders.

Also, do not belive in miracles, go to the Ripper site for example (www.ripper3.com) and they will promise you everything... I mean every mod developer wants to sell his product, so they promise everything. Magic KX is a fine chip, BUT these burnouts are mainly because of poor Sony design. Also a crash can happen with any mod, and there you go, your coils/len is burnt. Would you like to risk that ? Just because someone wrote that the KX is totally safe ? Oh, I'd suggest to protect your slim, or sooner or later you'll end up with a dead one. Also note that the Magic chip does not offer anything like today's excellent chips, it offers booting of backups only, has no firmware upgrades/bootmanager, etc. So it's just one of the low-end (I mean in functionality) chips, and that's why you have to pay so less for that...
pS: post with normal fonts please next time...
Oh , well I never said they were completly safed , I said that i saw alot of good opinions on it and good ratings by ppl on this board , which is why i posted this to get an opinion in which one to buy.Like you said its cheap and i can get better ,this is what the main purpose of this post was for......what do you recommend ?
Yes, if you do not need the extras that the other (but more expensive) chips offers then you shuld go for the Magic. BUT, as I already said, you should look into the Summ0ne/Comsoft fix threads, buy those 2 resistors (plus a pic if you have a pic programmer) and appy the fix eventhough some people said that the Magic is totally safe, it's worth that extra 0.1 usd to get even better protection. Unfortunatelly some people already reported that they had burnouts with Magic KX and with Muppet chips (Magic clone) so the chip itself is not that safe. It may be better than some other low end chips (and it may be better than some more expensive ones) but there may be problems with them aswell.
uns97: u absolutly right!
i don't get it, now days when even clones support autodetect of ps1/dvd backkups and run it automaticly, some ppl pay more then 20$ on a chip that don't do that!
the chip is working fine but it's fanctionallity as the old chips and don't offer anything new.
i say the Best chips are the Matrix and Crystal thay worth the money even though thay over payed, thay work like a charm. but if he don't want to pay alot for a quality chips, he can buy a cheaper chip which offer much more fanctionalities then the magic 5kx.
that just my opinion
