Recently I made a new rig to run OSX and Win. My system is:
Intel i7 4770K
Asus Maximus VI Formula
Asus GTX770 2GB OC Edition
Kingston 16GB 1600Mhz C9 (4x4GB)
I bought the system a month ago without gpu and installed Mavericks with myhack 3.3.1 successfully without any problems (just needed kext for audio).
My problems started when I bought Asus GTX 770 10 days ago and since then my system suffering from random freezes. So last 10 days Im searching everyday to find a
solution for my problem and I have try many methods which none of them worked for me. Before I analyze the steps I tried I have to mention that most times the freezes
go away after 30 secs and sometimes I have to hard reset my system. Below are the steps I have followed so far:
1. Installing "Freeze Fix" app
2. Uninstalling Logitech software "LCC Connection Utility (for my mouse)
3. Change system definitions such as "Mac Pro 3.1" and "Mac Pro 5.1" etc
4. Do a fresh Installation
5. Install on a different hdd Mountain Lion 10.8.5
6. Remove any internal hdd/dvd device and leave only the installation drive
7. Remove any USB device that is connected to my PC.
Unfortunately none of the above worked for me as a solution..
All these days since I installed my new Gpu I had an eye all time time in Console to see from where these freezes were coming from...
So I noticed that every time I had a freeze I had also the same crash report to my console which is:
"localhost kernel: NVDA(OpenGL): Channel timeout!" (This is the report from my ML 10.8.5 installation)
Also I have attached a screenshot from console which is from Mavericks 10.9.1 installation.
As it seems the problem is probably connected with my Gpu and only I think.
Is there anyone who has similar problems (I red that many people also with GTX 6XX series have similar freezes) and can give me a solution to my problem?
