Well, at last I updated to 10.8.3 without problems. I needed to resolve some problems with some kexts, and then I updated via Combo Update.
Everything is working fine, and I even see that the system works better now. I didn't need to use the add movie wallpaper app, or vlc. I'm using the system with 10.8.3 since 4 days now, without problems.

Has anyone tried the Onyx 'fix', I mentioned it over in this thread, http://www.tonymacx86.com/mountain-...ermi-freeze-back-latest-drivers-10-8-3-a.html where I managed to fix the random freezes on a 560ti after update to 10.8.3

I don't know how or why it worked, but by running the full maintenance schedule (Permissions/Scripts/Rebuild) , I haven't had any freezes for around 10 days now.
And others have reported some success with this method.

Maybe a long shot, but worth a try?

I can confirm that this Onyx twist is working on my
MSI Gtx 560 ti twin frozr ii
I've done a lot of testing and both manual/auto sleep is working.
My hack has now been running for 8 hours with no freeze at all.
Before i ran that Onyx full maintenance i had 2 - 3 freezes every hour.

I didn't install any Nvidia drivers or Cuda.
Just a clean 10.8.3 install

Update:
16 hours with no freeze

After 24 hours with no freezes it came back.
I've given up and installed 10.8.2 and will wait for a permanent fix.
Maybe in 10.8.4 that freeze issue will be fixed

My advice to Nvidia Fermi GPU users is downgrade to 10.8.2 and run the OpenCL Patch in Multibeast 5.3.0.

For most Hackintosh users the 10.8.3 dosn't contain important updates.

The Safari stand alone update (6.0.4) you can get here:

And BTY
sunygrdjc i've tried the kexts you pointed to combined with OpenGL Patch on a SuperDuper 10.8.3 backup and unfortunately that didn't solve the freeze problem for my GPU.

@Shinji3rd did you do a fresh install of 10.8.3 or did you do the combo update? im really interested in your method! thanks in advance!

None of the fixes (besides VLC loop/movie wallpaper/installing older drivers) worked for me, my 560Ti kept freezing.

What seems to have worked is a fresh install of 10.8.3, not updating, but installing 10.8.3 directly.

3 days running without a freeze! :)

please do looking to come back to hackintosh on my ga b75m-d3v rev1.1 ( had it running fine on onboard hd4000) but want to use my evga gtx 550 ti

I have the same card :)

1)are the freezes totally random or do they happen at certain instances? (i dont use the sleep function and random freezes only occur after a sleep)

2)after a freeze, does the console print an error called "OpenGL channel Timeout!" ?
3)have you used this guide by aolivero when installing drivers? (this fixed mine)
4)what options have you enabled in the org.boot.chameleon.plist ?

I am on 10.8.2 with this card and have no issues with it. Even with sleep. I am using the 10.8 DPL3 drivers, the other ones cause the random freezing issue for me.
