Hi

I was running a hackintosh with 4 screens on 2 NV 560 2 GB cards. Before the update to 10.8.3 I had rarely a freeze, but since 10.8.3 I was having freezes multiple times a day, needing to restart and driving me crazy.

Yesterday I took the decision to throw away these cards and buy brand new EVGA NV 660 TI cards.
Now it is working 24 hours without any hang, so it seems a big success !

Before switching to the new cards I did a clean install of 10.8.3 update, and have NOT applied any custom NV drivers from multibeast

My org.chameleon.Boot.plist looks like this:
