Ok, I found a good 3.3v point used by dms3 and other 3.3v chips. I decided to buy some blue leds and soldering them to the 3.3v. My question is... Is this harmful to the PS2? Drawing power from it whenever my PS2 is gaming. Can someone explains how modchips draw power from the PS2 without damaging the unit? It turns off after booting?
I heard that the old Magic series constantly draws power from the motherboard and that interrupts the PS2 causing the PS2 to die faster. I was also told that today's chip turn themselves off after they boot a game. Is this true? I thought only the Matrix Infinity does that. Does Duo and Magic 3.1 do that?
Ok, next question. Can I solder all 5 leds to the 3.3v point? =) (Please take it easy on me, I don't know much about how electronics work.) Or should I link the power to the leds?
Here's what I'm talking about: http://img56.exs.cx/img56/6245/ledplan.jpg
Which plan should I go with? Or you guys have a better one?
By the way, my leds are rated to be used at 3-4v. I don't care if they dim down when they dont get enough power, I don't need them to be super bright anyways.
Thanks for any help.
