Ok, I have an SCPH-39001. I looked around a little online to determine my version of PS2 because I am gonna purchase a chip. So far, I have found a few different results. Some guy on ebay said I have a version 7/8, and another site said I have a version 7. So I guess I have a 7. A few questions tho.
How many different motherboard possibilities am I looking at? and
Where, online of course, is the best place to get a chip. Basically, everyone feel free to throw their recommendations at me.
I imagine the universal (Multi-version) chips are expensive as hell so I wanna steer clear of those as well as no-solder chips.
