Hey everyone. I live in London, Ontario and today while looking for modchip installers I came across some interesting info and I was wondering if anyone could confirm it. This person was saying these modchips out there end up increasing the voltage sent to your laser everytime you install a chip. He said this is just something that happens. And this fact combined with using burned discs only puts more stress on the laser therefore causing it t burn out faster. This guy was saying that he does something called a t-sopt mod or something and all this does is send new instructions to the original bios chip on the console's board to recognize copyed games as acceptable...the way a modchip works. BY doing this you don't get the voltage increase and it's safer. Also, you are not using any external modchip...you're just using the original bios chip already on the motherboard. I want to find more info on this...has anyone heard of this happening? Are these modchips that we're buying causing more stress on our consoles causing them to wear out faster? I have no clue but I would like more info....if anyone has any can you help me out?
