I had the 12E52 beta and the 12E55 release has the same graphics drivers, I have experiences freezes with both on my 550 Ti. However, I did not think about the mail application. It is always open in the background, how did you trace it back to this so I can check on mine?

I usually keep mine off, and when I switch it back on, I start freezing. I've also noticed that sometimes when I exit screen sleep, the mouse pointer doesn't respond and I get a freeze. I've tried using the antifreeze app and it seems to fix the screen sleep freeze issue but I haven't tested it on the mail app since I've been without internet for 2 days

I would like to ask a question before updating to 10.8.4 from 10.8.2

Correctly i have video drivers patched by Vczilla, i got sometimes freezes (on in a day or two in a day, sleeping not working)

If i follow the instruction of Shinji3rd my drivers from 10.8.2 will still work and i can safely follow this instruction?

Does GTS 450 work better in 10.8.4?

Thanks, and hope for replay.

Hi Nortex.
By following my instructions you will update from 10.8.2 to 10.8.4, INCLUDING the video drivers, so vczilla's drivers will be replaced with the new ones from Apple. This new drivers works great on Fermi cards, and that includes your GTS 450.
After the upgrade, be sure to install the Freeze Fix App that I mentioned in the instructions, and your system will not have any freezes at all, at least not related to the video card.

Hello dear Tonymacx86 Forum!

Updated successfully to 10.8.4 i only had to do this again:

--Enable OpenCL patch - with (Terminal)
--Enabled Trim - with (Terminal)
--Added USB 3 Kext Fix (PXHCD.kext) - with (KextBeast) App.
--(Freezefix)" App to Fix nVidia's random freezes. Does a great job. thanks again to "dan542" for the fantastic little App.

(not used MultiBeast) as i had a working 10.8.3 System before.

cheers

After the update my GTS450 does have the random freeze. Was using 10.8.2 with the DP3 driver without any problem for many months. But luckily there is a tool to fix it.

@markart I've tried running them without FreezeFix.app and sadly I've been able to reproduce the infamous fermi freeze. I put my display to sleep (ctrl-shift-eject) and awaken it again a couple of times and eventually my system has frozen... Perhaps it wouldn't freeze with normal usage, but I didn't want to use my hackintosh in fear that it might freeze. I'd recommend using FreezeFix.app with the new drivers for now, I've got no problems whatsoever with it.

PS: I've got a GTX 560 Ti, so your experiences with 550 Ti might be different, but I doubt so.
