I have noticed from posts that not every component is made equal, with identical kit, the same model processor may for some reason outpace it's bretheren.. do companies do this impurpose, in the hopes of taking advantage of our obsessivesness, getting hardcore OCer's to buy like 100's of processors?

You will get batches of materials used to make chips/components, etc.
Every batch, athough identical, will not end up having the exact same qualities
as the last batch did. Metals, silicon, etc will vary slightly from batch to batch.
It's the same with every thing made in this world. It's not deliberate.

....I'm back, but only as a part-timer... :)

You also list remember that the tolerances on these devices areincredibly minute. If a mobile phone, a television or a car had the same differences as each batch of CPUs do, they would still all perform exactly the same.
However with electronic components where you have nearly a billion transistors on a piece of silicon the size of your fingernail, these tiny diferences can have a huge impact.
