General

The Wii has had different drive chipsets since its launch. The best way to know which version your console has is to open it and look at the text written on the chipset itself.

Another way to know is using the serial number of the console. It's not 100% accurate and not yet complete, but gives a quick way to check your console's chipset.

Serial numbers

Europe

GC2 - DMS or GC2R - D2A

(Compatible with first generation mod chips)

  • LEH 100XXXXX
  • LEH 101XXXXX
  • LEH 102XXXXX
  • LEH 103XXXXX
  • LEH 104XXXXX
  • LEH 105XXXXX
  • LEH 106XXXXX

  • LEH 1089XXXX
  • LEH 1091XXXX
  • LEH 109128XX
  • LEH 109166XX
  • LEH 10979XXX

GC2R - D2B

(Incompatible with first generation mod chips)

  • LEH 10889XXX
  • LEH 1089XXXX
  • LEH 109225XX
  • LEH 10924XXX
  • LEH 1100XXXX
  • LEH 1101XXXX
  • LEH 1104XXXX

For European models it seems the D2B chip was introduced somewhere between LEH 1088XXXX and LEH 1097XXXX.

If your serial is below LEH 1088XXXX there is a 98% chance you don't have the D2B chip.

I your serial is between LEH 1088XXXX and LEH 1097XXXX the chance you have the D2B chip is about 50%.

If your serial is above LEH 1097XXXX there is a 98% chance you have the D2B chip.

GC2 - D2B

(New Wii with the chip's legs missing)

  • LU 5154XXXXX

For North-America it appears that there are three different ranges in use (LU1/LU3/LU5). Its possible that each range is used in a different area, factory or language pack.

Each range will have a number where the D2B chip is introduced.

For LU1 this seems to be around LU 104XXXXXX and LU 105XXXXXX.

For LU3 it is between LU30667XXXX and LU3070XXXXX and

for LU5 it is somewhere between LU 5077XXXXX and LU50853XXXX.

For the new Wii with the legs cut, it's somewhere between LU 51525XXXX and LU 51545XXXX
