V5 Modbo modchip installation diagram

One of the revisions of the fat PlayStation 2 was the V5. They were found in many of the SCPH-3000x systems. Matching console model numbers and board numbers are listed below. V6 consoles also have the same model numbers, board revisions numbers, and installation diagrams.

You can find the model number on the sticker on the bottom of the console, and the board number is printed on the PS2 main board if you take apart your console. Note that there can be multiple board numbers within a specific model number.

  • NTSC-J (Japan):
    • SCPH-30000R (GH-015)
    • SCPH-30005R (GH-015)
    • SCPH-30006R (GH-015)
    • SCPH-30007R (GH-015)
  • NTSC-U/C (United States)
    • SCPH-30001R (GH-015)
  • PAL
    • SCPH-30002R (GH-015)
    • SCPH-30003R (GH-015)
    • SCPH-30004R (GH-015)

Note that there are multiple versions of the Modbo modchips available, but the installation diagrams are all the same. Some example versions are Modbo 3.0, Modbo 4.0, Modbo 5.0, and Modbo 750.

Installation tips

Here are some tips I have for you when you are soldering your chip into a V5.

  • Using 30 AWG solid core wire works well for most of the points.
  • Use some thicker wire for the 5V and ground wires.

On the Modbo version 5.0 there is no “F” pad so what are you supposed to do there?

If I were to have an SCPH-30001 and an SCPH-30006 models on hand, being that some parts on each were broken could I combine the remaining working parts to make a working ps2?

Thank you for the useful guide, I got my chip working. Maybe not the best place for the chip since it make it a bit tall.
