Even Extreme Overclockers are Human After All

And yes, they enjoyed what we saw too.

Many of you enjoyed our feature on the recently concluded GO OC 2010 finals—especially when we featured the “welcome diversion” of four scantily-clad women taking the stage.

We even caught eventual champion Matose looking up from his setup to check out the action, even as he was increasing his lead over eventual runner-up stephenyeong (who was also distracted). The Romainian winner admitted to being “inspired” by what he saw, an implied concession to his very normal tendency to check out good-looking members of the fairer sex. Even the most extreme overclockers are human after all.

But those show-stoppers weren’t the only eye-candy on hand at the event, which is why we’ve just published The Babes of GO OC 2010 for your enjoyment. May the chance to see these women up-close and personal inspire overclockers to qualify for next year's finals!

    We still do "scantily-clad women" in this day and age?

    Oh, the shame of being a geek.

    I really wish they'd stop doing stuff like that, it's embaressingly pathetic.

    ^^ That's where I thought this was going. By being distracted I was expecting somebody to (almost) swig from a LN2 flask instead of a coffee flask, or stare at a half-naked lovely just long enough for his pot to run out and explode his CPU.

    Just saying "even overclockers are human too because they glanced up at some chubblies" was a bit of a letdown.

    In what possible way? Sex sells, always has, always will. And it's not like these girls have been forced onto the stage - if they want to make some coin using their bodies then why the hell not?
