I just had a "random" crash again after a few days of uptime. I believe I finally have the answer about what's causing these crashes: Nvidia drivers.

I must be using some apps that take advantage of the GPU, or maybe I'm just have too many Windows at the same time. The random system hard freeze (KP) I just got today is exactly similar to the KP I was getting with the latest Nvidia drivers and NvidiaGraphicsFixup on 10.13.4 when playing Fortnite.

This KP above was not triggered by Fortnite this time, but just after using my hackintosh for several days (with many Finder/TextEdit Windows and a few apps open). Fortnite that is intensively using the GPU triggers these hard freezes above almost instantly after the game is launched or after 1min in-game, while a normal use of my hackintosh would only trigger these GPU-related hard freezes once in a while (every 2-4 days uptime).

Previous on 10.13.3 and 378.10.10.10.25.106 drivers, the random KP I was getting were traced as the following in the logs, like @rasa.acharya, @giftmusic, @eiriasemrys, @ophelia, @juantrix:

Code:
Double fault at 0xffffff8***19a8

But now on 10.13.4 and 387.10.10.10.30.103 they trace as:

Code:
TIMED-OUT WAITING FOR NMI-ACK, PROCEEDING

The stack trace is just dumb in my opinion and can't locate where exactly things started to go wrong, which clearly is (to me) linked to NVidia kexts.

Anyway... I don't have a solution for these. I'm just going to swap my Nvidia card for an AMD one I have to see if I can pass my 4 days uptime record. If I can, it will be a confirmation of the above and I will eventually think about buying a new AMD card.

EDIT: I swapped my Nvidia card for AMD card. The same exact KP happened when I was connected through Remote Desktop and played a video remotely. Which means the issue is not Nvidia related.

I was able to locate the real cause of the issue: AVX offsets.

My AVX offset was set way too high: at -5. I had to reduce it even more to -8. Now I can play Fortnite with my Nvidia card without major issues (still some Metal crashes from time to time, but no KP at all) and play videos through RDP without triggering the hard freeze (KP). Let's see if that holds a few weeks.
Disaster has struck here. For some reason now I am back to the situation almost a month and a half ago with random hard freezes, without causing a KP. I slept after an uptime for I think 5 days or so, with everything seemingly working perfectly and in the morning it won't wake from sleep (caps lock LED won't light up, indicating a freeze). After rebooting, it now almost immediately freezes even when nothing (other than background apps) are running. @Thireus can you please share with me your EFI folder, and your BIOS settings?
Here I thought I now have an almost stable hack :(

Also as previously, there is a peculiar thing: when I run memtest from terminal (memtest all 2), then for as long as it is running the system won't freeze. @revevs do you think this could be due to a faulty RAM stick? The memtest finishes successfully each time

When I was having my freezing problems I thought it was RAM also, dropped $225 on new RAM, and it turned out it wasn't the RAM at all, it was related to my GPU. Sorry to hear you are having issues, hope you find the answer. Have you considered starting from scratch and doing a fresh install and working forward with that?

My memtest also ran fine. It was only when I took out a stick that the freezes stopped.
Do you have more than one stick? if so, take one out at a time and see.

I was lucky in that I had 2x8gb and 1x4gb and it was the 4GB that was the issue.

Yes I have all the 8 banks populated. Did you have hard freezes without KPs too? And by any chance, did you too experience no freezes while memtest was running?
I guess the weekend now shall be spent debugging this..

Yes hard freezes with no KP. And when Memtest ran all was ok.

Take half your sticks out and see how you go. if it crashes, half again etc and with any luck there may be one bad stick.

I just had basically same crash again. I can replicate the Kernal panic anytime I use iTunes and Resolve at the same time. Any time I let youtube play forever (will crash within 10-20min). And any time I play RED Helium footage in Resolve. If I avoid those three conditions, I can make it days without a KP. I will try the offset change. Here's my KP:

Excuse my ignorance, but what is MemTest? Googling gives me results to MemTestx86. Is that what you guys are talking about?

I'm back on Sierra for the time being as I was unable to solve the Freezing issue.
In my case - the GUI just stopped responding, but I could ssh in from another mac and issue commands, run cli programs etc.
I couldn't reboot or shutdown remotely though - my session would log out from the remote computer, but the frozen Hackintosh would just sit there and not reboot.
I could replicate the issue by leaving my computer idle for a few minutes and then launch a web browser - instant freeze.
I ran geekbench, cinebench and upgraded all my outdated macports in terminal all while TimeMachine was performing a back-up and spotlight with reindexing and the hackintosh handled it fine.
Launch safari or chrome - instant freeze.
Log in remotely (ssh), issue reboot - hackintosh just sits there frozen and won't reboot.

I'm using Radeon GPU (R380X) and Skylake CPU (6700K) on Z170X board.
Sierra is 100% stable and still supports some old 32 bit audio programs that I need to run, so I guess I'm staying put.

Just wanted to chime in to let people know it happens with ATI GPU - it's not an NVidia only issue.
