I got El Capitan working on my desktop computer, but it just randomly freezes (I have to restart the computer after a freeze).

After looking up solutions on how to fix it, I saw that the ethernet kext may be at fault. So I removed the kext and wouldn't you know, it wasn't freezing anymore, but then I wouldn't have internet. Is there any solutions to this? I do have a network adapter for wifi (Zyxel NWD2705) but i can't get that to work properly either.

The kext i have to use to get ethernet is the Realtek811 from multibeast for El Capitan.

Specs:
Graphics: MSI Radeon R9 390 Gaming
MotherBoard: GA-Z97-HD3
RAM: 4x 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3
CPU: i7 4790k

PS: I've tried to change the volt from 1.5 to 1.6 with no help.

Thanks.

Did you find a fix for this? Is this the freeze when you can only move the mouse but you can't click anything?

My system freezes, but I can't move the mouse or use the keyboard. Nothing works. Sometimes it won't even shut down or restart when I press those buttons on the case. I have to wait several minutes and then press them for the system to shut down and restart.
