    I think I have a fake Magic 3.1 according to this site (http://modchip.ca/install/ps2/magic/magicfakes.php). I got this chip for free, so theres no loss to me, but is there a risk to installing this so-called fake or is this just an advertising scam from modchip.ca? btw, i have the red ubicom magic chip.

    I would be suspicious considering that your chip was free. It is most likely a clone. Is your chip green?

    since it is free you may as well try it out not all clones are bad but they usually dont work up to the standards of the real ones if you can solder and you feel confident about your install go ahead and try it out the only way that you can break your ps2 is by you messing up the install if the chip dosent work you can just take it out
