I know its off topic but can we start a thread for testing and solutions to the USB freeze issue? as mentioned by another user it seems like the major remaining issue on many of these 9series Gigabyte boards.
I did two fixes at the same time, and for the last 24 hours, it has been perfect.

The HD4600 is still working fine.
I also followed a link I found on how to wipe HWMonitor from HD because toleda mentioned about it not being supported in series 9 boards (which I installed using MultiBeast at some point).

Basically is to delete 2 kext and re-install FakeSM only from Multibeast, rebuild caches and repair permissions and voila!

Like I said, 24 hours without a single USB freeze (I plugged-unplugged maybe 20 times during that 24 hours). Even resolved my sleep and shut down issues (where it would hang and have monitor issues) to being perfect. Sleeps and wakes up without delays or glitch, shuts down without hanging.

I can provide a list of kexts loaded should anyone need to see.

Again, gracious thanks to the people involved in the fixes and the community!

I'm working on the same settings except the CPU, 4770s.

Can you post your installation process?

Bios settings, Kexts, etc.

Have you updated the bios to f3?

Thank you very much.

Sure,

Loaded "Optimized settings" in the BIOS (I still have F2 as the only note for F3 was about using SSD, which I do not have).
I disabled VT-d.
That's it.

Here's the list from MultiBeast.

3 days now, 2 overnight sleep, and didn't have to reboot. No crashes of any apps yet either. Knocking on wood!

Thank you very much for the info, this week I will get with it. Maybe in the next version of MultiBeast will come all set for 9 series with a bit of luck.

Very grateful. Great work.

Early adopters of 9 Series motherboards are finding that QE/CI isn't working through Intel HD 4600 natively, causing some integrated graphics issues with both installation and post-installation. This is because Apple hasn't released any Macs with the chipset, hence chipset support is absent in OS X as of 10.9.3, namely in /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntelFramebufferAzul.kext.

Luckily it's fixable via a replacement kext or id.

The specific problem is MEI. MEI is now called dsdt/HECI. dsdt/ssdt injection does not work. An Info.plist edit is required:
Code:
add: IOKitPersonalities/AppleIntelMEIDriver/IOPCIPrimaryMatch/0x8cba8086
To achieve full graphics acceleration on 10.9.3 via HD 4600 on 9 Series motherboards, download the attached patched version and install via KextBeast or the like.

NOTE: If new iMacs are announced next week, a 10.9.3 Supplemental will soon be available with native 9 Series OS X support. The patched Azul is obsolete at that point.

Credit to RehabMan and Toleda for finding the fix. :thumbup:

Hey guys! Got some small problems, somethings covering Spotify so I can't switch songs..
Screen Shot 2014-06-15 at 16.57.54 (2).jpg
That screen is hooked up to my mobo(and the Intel HD 4600 graphics). Tried the patch of course, installed, repaired, rebuilt s/l/e. Can't open pictures in preview either and when I have the monitor hooked up to mobo Firefox crashes frequently, so I got that going for me! :p:beachball:

Can we still enable hdmi audio using this fix? (using the Z97N-WiFi board).
