Oh boy *sigh*, never thought OC would actually be taken so seriously it receives annual self contained 'eSports' of overclocking league, I wonder if the next big 'smash dat hardware limit cap' will be something like assembling GPU from scratch live and in front of shit ton of crowd? Tempting to see...

serious question are these girls into overclocking and pc tech and hardware too or are they hired just to be here?. Please don't take me as trying to say this is wrong or bad or girls cant be into hardware too, i'm just curious. Also why do they wear clothes like that. is that to appeal to the guys? honestly just never understood it with these events and girls wearing short skirts. again not saying it a problem is just curious :D is it really hot in there or something haha

Behind all the make up and forced smiling - no, but some may had a small peek of interest, though those girls are paid quite sufficiently to show off in these clothes and it does makes sense, because majority of them work as models in fashion industry and are hired by companies to attend these event.
