i don't know if this version improves the problem that i have. If anyone can suggest me what maybe is the reason.
Sometimes after the restart after the boot screen of the mac the white page after the screen goes black with no signal. i restart again or i try in verbose mode and after sometimes works. i have a gigabyte z87 ud4h and gtx760 i disabled the internal graphic card. i think that for some reason it activates the internal graphic card but i have it disabled from bios.

Had the same issue. Used Multibeast 6.2.2 and the recommended settings for the motherboard and then installed NVIDIA Web Driver 334.01.01f01 and checked that the nvda_drv=1 is in /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist. Lastely made sure the pref pane for the nVidia driver had the web driver selected. Multibeast seems to reset the pref. After that each reboot has brought the system up with working video.

:) Thanks!! it seems to be better now...how do you boot? with -v nvda_drv=1 or just normal mode?
i can't send you yet a pm. Sorry that i am offtopic...now the boot its fine :) Although i have an other issue, it freezes randomly after that i installed the drivers, if you can suggest me what to try..i can provide you also my steps with multibeast and my hardware..thank you again and sorry for this.

i can't send yet pm's if you want an other way to talk about this...maybe the problem is also with my RAM because i just installed 4th DIM...

I have the 898 on a Z77-UD5H. After sleep the audio usually goes out. I simply drop to terminal unload and reload the coreaudio kernel extension.

sudo kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext
sudo kextload /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext

works fine. and beats having to reboot. Hopefully apple will fix this.

might just make a script shortly to automate this.

Bingo! I got the sound working again.

This thread has instructions for updating Chimera:
http://www.tonymacx86.com/general/133380-efi-partition-chimera-3-01-update.html

I didn't want to mess up my Mavericks partition, so I installed Chimera to a USB thumb drive formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) with a GUID partition table.

Then I then modified the steps in the thread to pull the 'boot' and 'boot1h' files from the /usr/standalone/i386/boot folder on USB drive.
Then I had to google and download the HDAEnabler.dylib file to place in the Extra/modules folder in my EFI partition.
Finally I had to manually add the 'HDAEnabler=Yes' and 'HDEFLayoutID=01000000' to the org.chameleon.Boot.plist file also in my Extra folder opt my EFI partition.
Reboot...and...the sound works.

To summarize - if you installed Chimera to your EFI partition....you need to update it.

Don't upgrade if your machine is stable. If it ain't broke, don't try fix it.

This is the best advice so far. I'm not touching anything!!!

After install 10.9.3 combo update and Multibeast 6.3 i begin to experienced some issues, like more apple cursor color ball with freezes, flack issues in monitor and rare black screen with cursor working. In 10.9.2 the system works with no fault. I think it is not Multibeast 6.3, because problems arrived with 10.9.3. I don't now if it is for improvements that Apple do with graphic cards, or no. I just have HD4600 and MB H87. After 10.9.3 i made permissions fix like some users recommends. Anyone can propose any solution?

Thanks,
LP

No audio on wake from sleep is a known issue in Mavericks, see this thread on Apple Support for a possible solution: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5482053?start=240&tstart=0

So basically, this is an issue that was introduced with the release of 10.9.2? MB 6.2 uses the audio kext from 10.9.2 correct? and MB 6.3 uses 10.9.3 audio?

This issue was not present in 10.9.1 and using audio from MB 6.1 works flawlessly, even after wake from sleep.

That is exactly the scenario I see with my system.

I have a GA-z77n-wifi, I5 3570k, HD4000 graphics, ALC 892 Audio drive build
AS suggested on page 3 I changed from the default MacPro 3,1 to iMac 13,1 fixed the sound problem.
Have no idea why.

After update to 10.9.3 on GA Z68X-UD5H-B3 the mothercard beep and the systeme fan was not recognized and was stopped. After apply Multibeast 6.3 the mothercard beep too and it is impossible to manage the fans with FakeSMC v6.8.1307 plugins.
The solution is to desinstall FakeSMC v6.8.1307 plugins and install NullCPUPowerManagement kext. The mothercard beep stop and the systeme fan is functional but it is not possible to see it in Istat Pro.
What solution ?
