Here's the step by step way to update:
:ch: Repair Permissions using the Disk Utility on the drive to be updated;*
:ch: Backup your current installation using Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper;
:ch: Download the latest MultiBeast for Mavericks which has the latest ACL8xy audio drivers**;
:ch: Download the Combo Update and run the Combo Update to update to 10.9.5;
:ch: Re-boot;
:ch: Run MultiBeast for Mavericks and just select your audio driver to install and, optionally, the 10.9.4+ TRIM patch;
:ch: Re-boot; and
:ch: Repair Permissions again.*​

If you have TRIM enabled, check to see if it was affected by this update.

Note: If you encounter no audio after wake-up from sleep, here are several methods to "fix" the issue; see For posting audio problems, see Thanks to toleda for this information.

* You can use the Terminal instead of Disk Utility if you feel comfortable with a UNIX command:
 sudo diskutil repairPermissions /

**Important: If you last used a MultiBeast version previous to MulitBeast version 6.3 and are updating to 10.9.5, you should do a complete MultiBeast v6.5.0+ configuration "load" using your previously saved ".mb" file. MultiBeast 6.3 changed how audio is accomplished and needs Chimera v3+ to run correctly.

I'm using the Z77-DS3H GTX 760 lets see if this machines passes this update
I honestly think I might skip this one, which seems odd to me to do. However, being this is my first Hackintosh, and knowing things can quickly get out of hand when updating, I think I'll just wait until Yosemite.

I suspect I'll have more than enough issues with the new OS to keep me busy, and I don't see much in this update that really applies to me.

Good luck to everyone!

what about trim?
Completely broke audio on my GA-Z87X-UD5 TH. None of the fixes in current version of Multibeast fix it. Other than that, everything seemed ok. If anyone has any idea on a possible audio fix, would appreciate it. If not though, will start from vanilla and skip this update. Might want to avoid if you're using a GA-Z87X-UD5 TH motherboard.
