      My procedure is to
      1. Repair Permissions using the Disk Utility on the drive to be updated;*
      2. Backup your current system with Time Machine or Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper;
      3. Run the Software Update;
      4. Reboot;
      5. Run the latest MultiBeast to reload only the audio driver;
      6. Reboot; and
      7. Repair Permissions again.*

      * You can use the Terminal instead of Disk Utility if you feel comfortable with a UNIX command:
      sudo diskutil repairPermissions /

      Note that this update seems to make the recent 10.8.5 NVidia web driver refuse to load. Hopefully NVidia will issue an updated version soon again.

      Updated on both H77n-Wifi and Z87X-OC only had to enable audio using MultiBeast.
      Looks like it hasn't updated the permission repairs for the iTunes App in Disk Utility.

      I can confirm the HDMI audio problem; it's happening on a Mac Mini I use. Hopefully, this update solves the problem.

      Successfully applied the update to my system.

      All components are working without patches (excl. Audio, as I am using USB Audio, and I don't care about onboard sound).

      Use the latest version of MultiBeast to install your audio drivers (which includes installing a patched version of AppleHDA.kext for 10.8.5).
