which is a better chip outta the 2 and why... DMS4 SE Lite VS. Matrix Infinity??????
DMS4 SE is a clone chip (i.e.fake) of the DMS4 Lite or DMS4 Pro. So Idefinately wouldn't be recommending that pooh chip! Matrix Infinity chip performs identical functions to the DMS4.. I have both: a DMS4 in my V10 PS2 and a Matrix Infinity in my V12 (if you have a slim line I would definately recommend the Matrix casue it is more stable than the DMS4; on the other hand if you have anything other than a slim line than I would recommend the DMS4 Pro).
The DMS 4 SE is not a clone chip: http://www.dms3.com/dms4se/features.html
There may be fakes of it, but it's just a new release from DMS. The Matrix Infinity is an excellent chip. It's what I have in my v.4 PS2. It probably is a little more stable than DMS chips. The chips are almost identical as far as features, the main difference is that the DMS 4 has a HD Loader Program built into the flash. To use the MI with HD Loader or HD Advance, you'd have to install them to your MC using Infinity Manager and boot the elf files that way. Basically they're similar, you won't go wrong either way.
thanx for the help guys..i ordered the matrix infinity modchip..and just received it yesterday..but it came without the wires $49!!! without the wires! oh well..im jus happy mah azz didnt get scammed..so i juss ordered the wires for it today.....also what diagram would i go by...cause its the matrix infinity with the blue dot on it and i have a V13 ps2?? thanx again

Thanks Tokijin - I didn't know there was a DMS 'SE' chip. I said it was a fake cause the 'Matrix Infinity SE' is a clone chip: guess I'd better do my research next time!
Yeah no prob. I've made too many errant statements to count. Wasn't trying to prove you wrong, I just keep a close eye on new modchip's. You never know when such info may come in handy.
I heard that the Crystal Chip or whatever is supposidly better than both of them. You can play your backups online automatically without having to patch the DNAS code in or rebuilding it. Check it out at http://crystal-chips.com/main/
Well I believe the DVD-9 support is still in waiting for the Crystal Chip. It is no doubt a good chip. You need to use hacked firmware to play backups with the CC. Not a big deal though, there's plenty of sites to download it from. To say it's better than the DMS 4 or Matrix Infinity, that's a stretch. Those chips have been around longer and proven themselves. The CC is a fairly new chip, so there would be limited long term data on it.
I agree, stick with the DMS4 or Matrix - they have proven themselves to be worth while chips. Friends of mine have bought other chips (against my advice)including the CC, only to regret it later. But at the end of the day it's the consumers choice.
yeah but the fact that this is a new chip and is relatively updated makes it really better. When you think about it new is always better technology wise right. Now the fact that there's really not that much talk on here about it holds other people back from commenting on it. But I have a friend who is a extremest moderations and he said by far it beat the Matrix Infinity and DMS4 PRO SE. Don't believe me well just compare the three and holla back up at me pimp.

That's an opinion. I disagree with you. No offense, but I probably no more about PS2 modchips than you do. I could be wrong. The Crystal Chip is a good chip. It is currently the only modchip that auto patches DNA ID's for online play. If you care about playing PS2 game online, it might be worth getting the CC over the other two. I have a Matrix Infinity. I almost got a DMS 4 Pro, so I researched that thoroughly as well. From your sig I take it you have Swap Magic. I too have friends that are modders. One is a member of this site, the other is the person who did my PS2. I still talk to him over MSN. Correction on my earlier post, the CC does support DVD-9 games. If you look at the bugs for the latest CC firmware update, it talks about PS1 game fixes for the v. 14 PS2. The MI and DMS 4 have great firmware. Team Toxic are geniuses. Those chips have a proven track record. The CC is a good chip, but since it's a newer chip, it has some bugs to be worked out. The firmware also makes no mention of supporting multi disc games, something the DMS 4 and MI have done for awhile. I'm just not sure you can compare it to the other two, at least not yet. You're free to disagree with me. I'm not telling you you're wrong, nor am I saying I'm right. We just have different view points. Btw anyone looking for the crack to make the crystal chip auto boot backups and imports can find it here: http://forums.psxforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=25224 You download the CC firmware from the official site unzip it, then download the crack and unzip it in the same directory.
Yeah man you probaly no just a little about modchips than I do. But I probaly know more about technology than you lol. But you a good guy but I think online is a must nowdays. It beats playing by yourself allday.
Well I guess that makes me a loser, since I play with myself all day lol. Of course I'm into RPG's, so not really much point in playing those online. I never got into the MMORPG's. There are some good ones like World of WarCraft. You might know more about technology than me, I certainly don't claim to be an expert on anything.
Hey, is there hacked firmware like that for the DMS4 Pro chip? Because I really want it, and ToxicOS is nice. I have had no problems with my DMS4 Pro chip, IMO its the best out there. And the topic creator should've gone with the DMS4 Pro SE chip.
Not that I'm aware of. Toxic OS v.4 is really good operating system. It has all the features you'd expect from a top notch chip. Hacked firmware wouldn't serve any purpose that I know of. All the chips inherent abilites are unlocked after you flash it. Check out the specs: http://www.dms3.com/dms4se/features.html The MI is an awesome chip too. I've been told by a couple people that Matrix chips are a little more durable than DMS chips. Either chip is king of the modchip hill. Peace.
Dont need to check out the features. I already know everything, but thnx anyway, now I know's there's not any hacked DNA$ prevention firmware for DMS4 Pro chips. I'll probably get a Crystal on my other V7 then, see in sig. IMO, DMS4 Pro wins at the end, with more features and a 2MB flash. HDD Loader...
That's cool. I bet you use your v.7 with Swap Magic a lot lol. The DMS 4 Pro is great chip. I won't say it's better than my MI, but I'd be happy with either. Can't beat an HD Loader prog built into the flash, huh? Team Toxic thinks of everything. They ought to borrow the CC's auto DNA patching, but they've said they won't do it. Not sure why, but who cares? I've never played my PS2 online and don't plan to start now lol. Let's call the battle between the DMS 4 Pro and the MI a draw. Cheers!
84. Q. I know you said I should get a DMS 4 or Matrix Infinity, but I'm interested in the Crystal Chip, is the Crystal Chip any good?
A. Yes. It direct boots everything and supports all the features of the Matrix Infinity and DMS 4. The Crystal Chip has an added bonus: It auto patches DNA's for online play. So you can play your backups online automatically without having to dink around with Winimage, Windip, or Disc ID Insertor, or any form of DNA patching. The Crystal Chip is currently the only modchip on the market that supports this feature. The official Crystal Chip firmware isn't capable of booting backups and imports. You need to download the Firmware crack and extract it to the same directory as the Crystal Chip. The hacked firmware will boot your backups and imports. If you play your PS2 games online a lot, and are interested in getting it modded, check out the Crystal Chip.

Yea, I did use to use it all the time before I got my premod. And I think that Team Toxic won't put it in because they're public, everyone knows (about) them, so they could probably get it legal trouble a bit easier than the Crystal chip guy, since I think he(fine, or she) is anyonymous. But someone should make it for the DMS4 Pro, I dont care who, anyone, I want that feature...but its always good to have a built-in cheat device(I dont use it though) and an HDD loader, and be able to play DivX/Xvid CD/DVD+-R/RW's.
What's the total difference from the DMS4, Matrix Infinity, and The Crystal Chip? And if I were wanting to play my backups onlin which ypu be the best for me to get?
