Even Extreme Overclockers are Human After All

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 24 comments

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 (pictured above, and also distracted). The Romanian 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!

    He should be careful not to drop that liquid nitrogen in his lap as he drools over the babes.

    A good idea to add such "distractions" to a competition.
    I you're used to meet hot girls all the time it wouldn't distract you much, but usually geeks don't have much chances to that, unless they live in Romania ;) ) (or anywhere in Eastern Europe, for that matter).

    btw @ Roco, you have a typo at "The Romainian winner". ;)

    I really hate show girls because they are distractions and they bring in too many people who cram the show floors just to take pictures of them. Often these people create a massive traffic that really hinder the enjoyment of appreciating the main content of the shows. SG should be banned, or just have their own SG shows. If I want to see girls, I will just go online and surf porn sites, or pay to see them.

    If I was in the competition, I'd abandon all tasks and take a girl home.
