No, they're doing it right. So the 3600X and 3800X are already binned tight, but they cost more. So your chances of getting a good all-core overclocker might be a little higher, but the difference between an "ideal" and an "average" model are SLIM. You can't mark them up much, so your margin will likewise be slim. Meanwhile if you buy a crapload of the cheaper models, a bunch of them will end up being just as good as an "ideal" higher-end model. Since they paid far less, they make more money per chip, and buyers get a guaranteed clock plus a warranty. They've got multiple guaranteed bins so I'd bet a large number of their chips fall into one of those bins. Meanwhile the ones that don't clock great they can resell and/or sell in stock-clocked prebuilts.So they're not selling the 3600x or 3800x, maybe because they're factory binned (3600/3700) well enough already. Correct me if I'm wrong, but one complaint was that enthusiasts don't have much headroom for overclocking zen 2 chips because they overclock themselves well enough already. Seems more cost effective to buy the higher TDP 3600x/3800x and try to overclock than to bother with buying a "binned" version from vendors like Caseking.
