    I am gonna be buying a solderless Modchip that just connects through the drive Ribbon cable.

    But I have heard things like the Drivekey only supports 3x drive speed and not the full x6, and I really can't find any info on the other 2 chips.

    I would Like to know which one I should really get.

    Wasabi DX and Drivekey do exactly the same thing, 3x speed and no GC audiofix.

    FlatMii only loads ISOs from a PC, so you'd need to place your Wii next to a PC which has to be powered on all the time, to stream the game.

    So you are better of with a softmod.

    Hardmod:
    Drivekey read at 3x speed
    Wasabi DX read at 3x speed
    Flatmii streams iso from pc to wii
    Costs Money

    Softmod:
    Softmod read at 3x speed
    USB-Loader read faster then 6x speed
    Is free

    If i had to make a decision i should go for the softmod

    Softmods are not brick-proof and are a pain in the ass, plus I don't feel like going through a loader just to load a game that runs half-assed.

    So that answers my question, Drivekey it is.

    Sorry I only buy from websites, not a random person on a forum.

    I Just Ordered a Drivekey from Modchipcentral.com, and should be here in a little under a week.
