Hi.

I decided to do a fresh 10.8.3 install, and now I have issues I didn't have before. Random freeze, usually when in low CPU charge, but sometimes on regular usage too. I get the mouse cursor, but nothing reacts to hover, and when I click randomly, I get the Beach Ball Of Death... I'll try logs.

I'm on the Mac Pro 3,1 system definition, and got the i5 SSDT. I'm using a DSDTFree configuration and have a nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti.

This is what changes compared to my nude Hackintest HDD system :
-GenericUSBXHCI USB 3.0 kext. May be this particular kext, it quite new.
-Installed a kext that prevents CMOS resets on restart (the Multibeast one). Not sure if it's useful on a 6-Series UEFI motherboard.

Note that now I can't seem to wake. When I wake, I get a frozen screen (NOT the login screen, the desktop and open windows at time of sleep) with cursor and after click a BBOD... Not sure if related, but it looks awfully familiar !

I'll boot up my machine, with console and Activity Monitor on second screen to monitor these freezes. I'll post news on this when I can.

Any Help welcomed !
