    Just wanted to see if we could get some stuff done to try and determine externally what chip we have. Heres whats been said so far

    In Europe consoles with the serial: LEH1100etc or above, Quite common to have D2B

    LEH110xyzx OR ABOVE -> common D2B (like me, sigh)
    LEH10xyzxy OR LESS -> quite rare D2B

    US Wii Purchased 1/29 SN LU1054xxx has the D2B chipset. End of SN in box is a 6
    US Wii purchased 1/29 SN LU5074xxx has the DMS chipset End of SN in box is a 4
    US Wii purchased 11/19 (launch) SN LU1005xxx has the DMS chipset. End of SN in box is 2

    LU1037 (US) - DSM
    LU3041xxxxxxxxx - DSM
    LU303xxxxxxxxxx DSM

    LEH102888... DMS
    LEH1004xxxxx - DMS

    Aparently what one person saw regarding the numbers in the boxes at the end:
    0,3= D2A
    2,4,5 = DMS
    6 = D2B

    Please help in posting your serial numbers and numbers in the box at the end so we can maybe find more patterns

    Well I got a replacement console from Nintendo Australia that is supposedly about 1 week old.
    It has a GC2-DMS chip on the drive (yay [​IMG])
    Serial goes like this:-
    LAH1003XXXX2

    My old Wii which was replaced was bought on launch.
    I don't know what was inside it as I never opened it, however I do have that serial and it goes like:
    LAH1002XXXX4

    I made a _really ghetto_ table if anyone wants to add their records, or see what I've collected so far.

    From the data I've gathered, you've got about a 78% chance. The concensous on the net is that Wii's bought during launch are safe though.
