And the problem continues. This is ridiculous. ¬¬

 

Freeze and more freeze, on my gtx 460 in mavericks. 

Same here. :(

 

It's there no way to get this out? Their should be a bit that is triggering this issue.

I ended up pulling my old GTX460 and using the HD4000 on my I7. While far from the best gfx, it works perfectly in Mavericks. Using dual-screen, too w/ DVI & HDMI.

It could be called Tesla-Freeze as well.

My Nvidia 9600 GT keeps crashing on Mavericks. (10.9, 10.9.1)

Tried every possible options from changing smbios Macpro model numbers, GE on or off, PCIRooutUID, npci.

Nothing really makes a difference.

OpenGL Channel Exception and UI crashes completely.

If you want to test how stable your system is.

Try this :

Open Safari, browse here : http://ink361.com/app/tag/video

and play some videos. Try fullscreen too.

This a definitive way to test for OpenGL Channel Exception.

I can't play 5 videos without my UI crashing.

Sometimes it works, sometimes it crashes.

Also with more apps and processes running in the background, it crashes more easily.

Open some other tabs, open Process Monitor, Dashboard, Textedit, stress the memory and the CPU a bit, and then open a video there.

I killed my system many times with these method. Sadly HFS partition got damaged many times after forced resets from UI crashes and i had to reinstall OS X.

I have a topic about that being pretty frustrated about it now. Last night once again, UI crash, HFS damage, cannot be repaired.

I am gonna install OSX once again today, and try remote shutdown via SSH when the UI crashes.

Also gonna test VGA port, cause i am using DVI now, and some slower memory settings perhaps.

I bought an Asus ENGTX560 TI in October 2011 specifically to build my OSX/Windows PC. I don't regret this choice since this card offered the best performance/price ratio and has been able to play smoothly everything, including the most demanding 3D software

 

However the 560TI gave me big headaches since I wanted to install 10.6.8 rather then 10.7. But I learnt painfully that it can't be used on versions older then 10.7. I lost a few days of my time and Rosetta :( because of this.

 

Since then, I updated MacOS regularly and it's stable enough to use as my main working PC. However in the last months I suffered from more and more fermi freezes and restarts, to the point I was beginning to pull my hair trying to find a fix...

 

Since yesterday I installed your freeze fix app and for the first time the fermi freeze has not occurred for two full days!

 

So the very least I can do now is to say a BIG THANK YOU to dan542!! :thumbsup_anim:

Dear guys,

 

I've been reading this topic and my hackintosh is showing the same problem. I would like some advices to fix my system.

1. my computer freezes during quicktime video or safari opengl

2. Into the square of the opengl/video, a pink screen fills the space. 

3. During the freezing I can move the mouse, but no click is allowed. 

4. My log registers a number of 

kernel[0]: NVDA(Video): Channel exception! Exception type = 0x1f Access Violation Error (MMU Error 2)

 

I'm running the Mavericks 10.9.4 version, and my hardware is:

- Motherboard Asus H81M-C

- Nvidia Geforce GT 630 - 1gb

 

Thank you for any suggestion.

 

Yours

Dino

Edited:

I changed my SMBIOS to Mac 15.2, with no freeze fix, and the problem has gone. 

 

Finally, I can use my hackintosh without the freezing problem. 

 

Thank you guy for your help.

@dan542

 

Hello!

 

Thank you very much for your great app. I have it running for some weeks on a GT555m without any issues. No freezes anymore, even when I hotplug an external monitor and switch on the sync.

 

Have fun.

Sorry to bring up such an old topic, but...

 

I've recently installed El Capitan on a Supermicro X8DAE with dual X5670s and an Nvidia Quadro K4000 and was getting the "NVDA Channel Exception" error. Solution was to;

 

- Remove NullCPUPowerManagement.kext from /EFI/EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.11

 

- Remove AppleTyMCEDriver.kext from /S/L/E (*edit: Forgot to add this one*)

 

- disable Clover's CPUPM:

 

        <key>KernelAndKextPatches</key>

        <dict>

                <key>AppleRTC</key>

                <false/>

                <key>AsusAICPUPM</key>

                <false/>

                <key>Debug</key>

                <false/>

                <key>KernelCpu</key>

                <false/>

                <key>KernelHaswellE</key>

                <false/>

                <key>KernelLapic</key>

                <false/>

                <key>KernelPm</key>

                <false/>

        </dict>

 

 

- enable Nvidia inject in Clover:

 

        <key>Graphics</key>

        <dict>

                <key>Inject</key>

                <dict>

                        <key>ATI</key>

                        <false/>

                        <key>Intel</key>

                        <false/>

                        <key>NVidia</key>

                        <true/>

                </dict>

                <key>NvidiaSingle</key>

                <false/>

        </dict>

 
- Set the machine to be a MacPro3,1 (4,1 or 5,1 *don't* work for this board!) in config.plist SMBIOS section (use Clover Configurator to magic you a setting)
 
- Specify all the RAM slots occupied so all of it was recognised; easiest to do this in Clover Configurator. Make sure you specify *all* entries like this: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/309226-os-x-is-only-recognizing-half-of-my-ram/page-2.
 
This made *all* the difference, fully smooth 12-core/24-thread loveliness now. Hope this helps anyone - could have saved me a couple of evenings of frustration if I'd had this info.
 
Kailee.
