Announcing the New GN Medium Modmat 'Amp' PC Building Anti-Static Mat

  • Published on Sep 16, 2022 veröffentlicht
  • Buy the new GamersNexus 'Amp' Medium Modmat (81x40cm / 36" x 16") here: store.gamersnexus.net/product... (shipping immediately!)
    Our new 'Amp' Medium Modmat design features a to-scale ATX motherboard layout, complete with educational labeling, alongside to-scale DDR5, DDR4, and DDR3 comparison images and GPU tracking diagrams. We also included pinouts for cabling and a quick-reference ruler. At this smaller 810x400mm size than our standard Large Modmat (4' x 2' / 1220 x 610mm), the Medium Modmat is more portable and fits in more workspaces, allowing you to get a high-quality PC building surface -- including ruggedized anti-static conductive properties and heat resistance -- in more locations. This also directly helps fund our reporting!
    The NEW Amp Medium Modmat is here: store.gamersnexus.net/product...
    The LARGE Volt Modmat is here: store.gamersnexus.net/product...

    Would you ever be able to make magnets in the mod mat for screw holding or consider making a mod mat accessory with a set of magnet segmented trays for screws?

    • huzudra
      huzudra 2 months ago

      @Mat Broomfield That's what the comments section SHOULD be for, glad you learned something and had the humility to admit that. I encourage you to read further on the subject if it interests you.

    • Mat Broomfield
      Mat Broomfield 2 months ago

      @huzudra Thank you for the detailed explanation. I stand corrected. And educated ;-)

    • huzudra
      huzudra 2 months ago +1

      @Mat Broomfield Static and magnetic are entirely different things. Static can run into the thousands of volts (though almost no amperage) fairly easily with the wrong combination of clothing, surfaces, and atmospheric conditions. Magnetic induction however takes a rapid and strong field collapsing through many turns of wire to produce high enough voltage and current to do things, if you check out the cutaway of an ignition coil or transformer you can see what I mean. You either need a lot of copper for the field to drag through along with a fairly strong magnet or an extremely strong magnet like high atmospheric nuclear testing EMP level stuff or geomagnetic storm level stuff. Static damages through directly putting thousands of volts across very small transistors in silicon. The amount of current induced by a fridge magnet in even an inductor or transformer coil would be in the pico amps and milivolts or picovolts range I'd hazard a guess. We'd need an electrical engineer to chime in but I'm confident I can wave a fridge magnet around my PC and cause no harm, heck the shop PC where I work often has magnet based LED work lights stuck to the case and lives in a metal dust laden environment with ambient temps between 0C and 50C with trucks blasting unregulated CB radio and car ignitions with breaker points ignition and solid core wires. You're not going to get much worse than that and it's fine 99.9% of the time!

    • Mat Broomfield
      Mat Broomfield 2 months ago

      @huzudra If that's the case, why are there static discharge points on this mat - surely magnets can induce current?

      IMO it's to abrasive of a surface to use as a mousepad. Moving across it with your hand would feel like it's being sanded after a while.

    • sirmonkey
      sirmonkey 2 months ago +2

      they probably never produced anything beyond sample PCB's since the decision was likely made before 40 series chip allocation started from Nvidia. Nvidia usually waits until the very last minute to allocate the actual chips and just gives a required power delivery, gpu location, memory location schematic/template.

  • Jacob Scharmberg

    Wow this looks great! Been thinking of getting one of these as repair/desk mat combo. Can anyone who has one tell me if the surface is suitable as desk mat as well? Specifically, how rough/smooth is it and can you comfortably use a mouse on it or is it too rubberized for that?

    • Jacob Scharmberg

    Very nice, but sadly too expensive for my blood. I'll stick with my solution that terrifies everyone who sees it on first glance.
    Back in the 90s my dad rigged up a spare length of paired stranded wire (the kind you'll find in a decent 2-prong plug's wire) with both wires connected to the ground pin (and nothing attached to the hot or neutral pin). It looks like an extension cord that just ends in about 6 inches of bare copper, which I plug in and wrap around my wrist. It's uncomfortable (wire is not exactly a nice anti-static bracelet) but it gets the job done...I just have to be sure that I'm not doing something too sensitive when someone walks in on me, because the yelp of alarm when they see that can be quite startling.

      These are first-and-foremost useful for protecting the surface you build on and offering screw-tracking grids, convenient guides, and just a cool workspace. Secondarily, depending on what you're working on and the environment, the answer is that most modern components are fairly protected against ESD already -- but once you start tearing down to the base components, like down to the GPU core, you are in closer contact with more sensitive components like MOSFETs that can crater. It's uncommon, but cold & dry environments especially can cause this.

    • Watchful Fox
      Watchful Fox 2 months ago

      @Mads Tech So the difference is the length of the video. Tapping Steve saying how great thermal grizzly is for 15 seconds is the same to me as of it we 15 minutes. Either way it gets fast forwarded away.
      It's all the same at that point.

    • Mads Tech
      Mads Tech 2 months ago +4

      @Watchful Fox I think your confusing what’s being said.
      GN don’t take money for full paid videos about a product. ie what Linus does with a video sponsored by LG about the new LG tv or monitor. GN has some ads at the start for products non related to the videos content directly. That’s why they are independent.
      Frankly some of the other channels has got out of hand with things like “ASUS sponsors us to show you how great their new gaming monitor is” or “LG sent us 15 TVs thst cost 10k each and we want to show you how cool they are” ect.

    • Watchful Fox

      I've seen them do ads for thermal grizzly paste and I think square space or something. I doubt that was done free of charge. If it was they need to rethink their advertising.

    I'd love to see some objective tests vs other antistatic mats, like we saw with linus' screwdriver. As this is a much more niche item, I don't see it being as easy to get third party reviews. GN, I'd love to see a "project farm" like review from you guys, I understand it is a conflict of interest (though I think your audience isn't too concerned) and more importantly, it's not worth your team's time at all. That said, us fans woulf love to see it. I never ask for upvotes, but can this comment get some support to show GN how much interest is in the afformentioned?

      @Those Weirdos I was giving a very general example where objectivity across a range of tests is used. I assume GN (or for that matter LTT, or most other review channels) can handle that, as they understand previous actions cann affect current performance of a product (e.g. not thetmal testing disassembled graphics cards) I won't comment on their other videos, but I think their LTT screwdriver coverage was good (even if I'm not sure about their test weighting on the final "score". I think we can all agree giving a numerical score to anthing being reviewed is going to result in some bullshit useless number)

      > I'd love to see a "project farm" like review from you guys
      I'd recommend wanting good reviews with reliable and rational methodology instead of some guy doing random stuff to see what happens.
      Project Farm is NOT a good review source. For example, when testing blade edges, he'll apply wear to different areas of the blade across different knives, and then not carefully use the worn part of the blade when performing further testing.

    Cool stuff on it, but aren't most desk mats anti static because they're all the same material?

    0:30 an "antistatic mat testing tool"? nothing escapes through testing at GN

    I want a mat with places to hold components while i clean them of old solder.
    Silicone mats have holes but they are too deep and not very well designed for that purpose.
    hard 90 degree edges starting from 1mm to 3mm depth sloped toward the user cutouts would be nice.
    Oh well. Maybe in the distant future.

    Will both ends always be slightly curled up? Because if so, I think screws might have a hard time staying in the red boxes on the edge

    This is a great mat. I doubt youll see this, but some kind of hard mat would be nice for like a carpet surface. The easiet room for me to work is on a carpet floor and theres not been any real solutions besides "dont work on a carpet". I hope this product does well and looks like a great fit for the store.

      Shipping costs would make that cost prohibitive. It has to be rollable.

      eh, working on carpet is fine. just don't wear socks or drag your feet before touching the system, make sure you're grounded or discharge yourself before touching anything.

    Brb, buying both.
    Ive only recently come to truly appreciate the work GN does, through Ive seen the videos and been a sub for years. Its about time I repay the favour.
    Also ahaha yes, in writing, I see what you did there. Glad yours didnt have to be prompted.

    Kind of wish I didn’t backorder the volt modmat now, since this fits my bench so much better. Guess I’ll just have two mats.

    I'd buy one but I guess I'm giving up gaming after that EVGA news. Can you release some woodworking tools or a leather punch kit next?

    You should make a distopian-esque one and call them _Mad Mats_
    Or not, that is cool too.

    Would be interesting if you made a modmat carpet to stand on. That way we can live out the Xibit meme in PC upgrading and accessorizing.
    Half joking. But kinda not. Have drawn placements for feet, a drawn placement for where you drop the GPU if your name is Linus, etc.
