    10.8.4 Sleep not working - Z68X-UD3H-B3 (UEFI)

    Had to erase and install, then run the combo update after a Time Machine migration of all my data etc. I'd recommend updating the BIOS to UEFi. Take it you've tried entering 'GraphicsEnabler=no" in at the bootloader for the black screen problem?

    OS X 10.8.4 Update

    Updated through App Store, re-install HDA 889 and Trim Enabler with MB, so far so good.

    Corsair kindly replaced the two sticks I returned to them (only one threw up any faults via MemTest). In the 10 days the faulty stick was removed from the machine I have had zero issues. New memory back in today, so far so good. Not to JINX it but it looks like I've finally cracked it...

    May or may not be related (I type this with all toes and fingers crossed ha). Had another crash in Chrome, quit before it could lock the OS. Checked Console and made a note of the error, googled and found a RAM error and a recommendation to run Memtest. Burnt a DVD and ran it, ping, lots...

    Updated to UEFI, what a PITA that was, eventually found out you cannot use Q Flash to upgrade from F version BIOS' to UEFi so after much messing around with FreeDOS DVDs I ended up creating a Windows 98 USB boot drive and it was done in 5 minutes. Machine seems to be a bit quicker, boots...

    If/when you boot from your installer or after a clean install does the system boot fine with no errors?

    These are insanely good! OCZ Agility 3 for me.

    Thanks for all the replies, so much help :-) The system definition is MacPro 3,1 at present, I'll switch to iMac 12,2 if the problems arrise before I make the jump to UEFI on the M/Board.

    Can you post your boot.plist contents? I managed to get my machine to stop displaying the error and boot within two spins of the running gear (kernel wheel) - granted I'm running an SSD drive. Thanks

    Awesome, thanks for clarifying that. Did you use this guide or this approach by any chance? http://www.tonymacx86.com/mountain-lion-desktop-guides/65274-success-guide-gigabyte-z68x-ud3h-b3-eufi.html

    After some messing around getting a drive to be recognised in Q Flash (ended up partitioning an external USB drive with a 1GB partition, FAT32), I'm now running the F12 release of the BIOS. Updating to UEFI looks terrifying, but, I've found a guide on here with the exact same M/Board and CPU...

    Thanks for the replies gents, appreciate it. Had to chuckle at Ivory bridge myself. I've not been suffering with this for all that time, bad explanation from me. First Hack was flawless more or less, started with an E6300 then onto a Q9550. This setup was built early last year...

    Hi My second Hack, nearly three years of daily use as a freelance web and graphic designer, front end dev. I've a continuing issue with graphics and system lock ups, I've tried three separate 5770 cards and as of yesterday I'm now using an MSI GTX 650. STILL suffering from: • Single...
