The best motherboard 2018: the top Intel and AMD motherboards we've seen

Best Intel motherboard: Z370 Aorus Gaming 7

Form Factor: ATX | Socket: LGA-1151 (8th-gen only) | Chipset: Intel Z370 | Memory support: 4 x DIMM sockets (up to 64GB) | Multi-GPU support: Nvidia 2- and 4-way GPU SLI, AMD 2-, 3- and 4-way CrossFire | Features: 3 x PCIe M.2 (Key M)

If money isn’t an issue, the Z370 Aorus Gaming 7 from Gigabyte literally shines. Packed with more RGB lighting than you can shake a stick at, its the best way to celebrate Intel’s 8th-generation Coffee Lake Processors in an ATX tower case. It’s also an overclocking champion – its only limits are the restraints of your other components. You can reasonably expect upwards of 5GHz consistently with this motherboard. We’re not joking.

Best budget Intel motherboard: MSI B250M Gaming Pro

Light things up with this low-cost motherboard from MSI.

Form Factor: Micro ATX | Socket: LGA-1151 (7th-gen and earlier) | Chipset: Intel B250 | Memory Support: Dual-Channel 2 x DDR4 2400MHz (up to 32GB) | Multi-GPU support: No | Features: 1 x PCIe M.2 (32-110mm), Intel Optane Memory Ready

You don't need to break the bank to get your computer off on the right footing. This board from MSI is a great, inexpensive solution. It's limited in options for future expansions, so it's ideal for a one-and-done build. Since it's a gaming motherboard it has support for things like "Mystic Light Sync," which lets you synchronize all your RGB lighting with a single click.

Smartphone / The OnePlus 6 is as durable as it is beautiful

The OnePlus 6 is as durable as it is beautiful

The OnePlus 6 is a gorgeous device, ditching the aluminum body in favor of a more luxurious glass on glass design. You’d be right to worry about the device’s fragility, so JerryRigEverything tested out just how durable the OnePlus 6 is.

The first test conducted was to see how strong the front glass panel is. This will be the part of the phone that is the most important since it’s what users see all the time. Unexpectedly getting scratches is not what you want out of your brand new phone. Thankfully, the OnePlus 6 passed the test with flying colors, holding up to a level 6 on the Mohs’ scale before showing minor scratches and level 7 before deep scratches took.

Up at the top in the notch lives a metal speaker grille that will prove durable as well. The metal band wrapping the phone is made of aluminum. With the Mirror Black color tested out, it has a very shiny finish, but it held up well to scratches. Of course, over time dings will show, but not any more than other phones made of aluminum.

Once JerryRigEverything tested out the back glass panel and the camera—it’s just as durable as it is in the front—he moved on to the bend test. For a while there, things looked a little dicey as the OnePlus 6 does give somewhat, but it stayed the course. The band melded back into form and the glass stayed intact.

Overall, the OnePlus 6 is a very durable smartphone. It’s not unbreakable, the glass ensures that, but normal wear and tear will be handled easily. That’s very impressive for the $529 price tag.

Astronomy / NASA is sending a helicopter to Mars!!!

NASA is sending a helicopter to Mars

NASA has sent rovers, satellites, and spacecraft to Mars. Now, the government agency is sending a helicopter to Earth’s planetary neighbor, with an aim to “demonstrate the viability and potential of heavier-than-air vehicles on the Red Planet.”

“The idea of a helicopter flying the skies of another planet is thrilling,” said NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine. “The Mars Helicopter holds much promise for our future science, discovery, and exploration missions to Mars.”

The Martian helicopter will be attached to the belly of NASA’s Mars 2020 rover, like a robotic kangaroo, when the mission takes off in a few years. In the demonstration video above, the two spacecraft make for a pretty impressive celestial pair.

Because Earth is several light minutes away, the Mars helicopter will act autonomously when it arrives on Mars, interpreting commands from the rover. Flight tests on the planet will last 30 days, beginning with a quick test where the helicopter will hover for 30 seconds about 10 feet off the Martian surface.

“The altitude record for a helicopter flying here on Earth is about 40,000 feet,” said Mimi Aung, Mars Helicopter project manager at JPL. “The atmosphere of Mars is only one percent that of Earth, so when our helicopter is on the Martian surface, it’s already at the Earth equivalent of 100,000 feet up.”

If the mission is successful, NASA could use future helicopters to scout out new locations on Mars to study, including areas not reachable by ground travel.

When the rover lands with the helicopter attached, NASA says the small craft will subsist on solar power. It will also utilize heating mechanisms to keep its components warm during the Red Planet’s chilly nights.

NASA’s Mars 2020 mission is expected to launch in 2020, with an arrival timeframe of February 2021. If everything goes according to plan, the first helicopter could take flight on the Martian planet in just a few years.
