I didn't provide any sample myself, but that's precisely the point: If I have not enough data I ought to say: "My sample is too small to rule out mere chance
Fallacies don't make an argument logical either. It's how I write for a lack of other words describing precisely what I mean, note that I'm not a native English speaker but learned it from reading. I fail to see how it's very different from how you write either.
To elaborate, my post was indeed vague at some points so sorry for that
Keeping board stable/constant implies that I had a constant system/setup with the only variables being the GPUs. In here some GPUs failed and had driver issues and others didn't. IAW, the GPUs were the points of failure (again intrinsically). It also wasn't restricted to this site/forum but rather across most forums I frequent and reviews. It was no coincidence. At some point there wasn't even support for the GPUs (hardware acceleration, 4770 on release, hotfix for games needed)...
