    It depends largely on the drive type. You can get a guess of what drive you have by typing in your serial number at http://www.wiidrives.com/ (You can type a portion if you're not comfortable with sharing it.) Note that it may be off a bit; my D2B Wii was guessed by the site to have a DMS drive.

    For D2E drives (without epoxy) or earlier drives, the WiiKey 2, Wasabi (v3 or Zero), D2Pro are popular, modern modchips.

    For the D2E with epoxy and D3 drives, it's recommended to get a fourth generation modchip. It is possible to remove the epoxy and use the aforementioned chips, but it's more on the professional side. Compatible modchips include the Wasabi DX, DriveKey, FlatMii to name some. These will work on all Wiis and are dead-simple to install (no soldering), but are limited to 3x read speed (Brawl load times become more fun.)
