After updating to BIOS F8, I notice that often when I go to sleep, the fans turn off then immediately turn back on again. The display stays off though.

Any fix? I have wake on lan to false in BIOS.

Haven't seen this with my system running F8 BIOS. If it is sleeping correctly and not irregularly, take a look at what you might have connected/not connected when it sleeps and doesn't sleep. You will have to do a some diagnostic work.

Hi Wildwillow,


Hoping you can Help me out.


I built a machine similar to yours with the following specs.


GA-Z87X-OC
Intel Core i7 4770K Quad Core Retail CPU (Socket 1150, 3.50GHz, 8MB, Haswell, 84W, Intel Graphics, BX80646I74770K, 4th Generation Intel Core, Turbo Bo
Corsair CP-9020054-UK RM Series RM650 80 Plus Gold 650W ATX/EPS Fully Modular Power Supply Unit
Samsung 840 EVO MZ-7TE120 - Solid state drive - 120 GB - internal - 2.5" - SATA-600(MZ-7TE120BW)
TP-Link TL-WDN4800 450Mbps Wireless N Dual Band PCI Express Adapter
Corsair CML16GX3M2A1600C10 Vengeance Low Profile 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 Mhz CL10 XMP Performance Desktop Memory Kit Black
ORICO PFU3-4P 4 ports USB 3.0 PCI Express Card, Fresco FL 1100 Chip, compatible with Mac OS-X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 Version or higher, Linux, XP, Vista


I tried this graphics card after the install but found I was actually happy enough with the on board Graphics so I remove it again.
Asus Nvidia GeForce GT 640 Graphics Card (2GB DDR3, PCI Express 3.0, VGA, 2x DVI-D, HDMI, Nvidia 3D Vision Ready)

I had some freezing Issues about a week after the build when using USB drives and also when using google chrome.

I bought a USB PCI card (orico) hoping it would help, but it did not.

I set he ram to 1333 to stop the glitches and crashes along with changing the profile to iMac.

Next I removed the Generic USBXHI.kext file from
System/Library/Extensions

Then I ran Kext Utility for some cleaning / Repairing of the kexts folder.

Next I repaired Disk Permissions and done a cold reboot.

Things went well for about 2 weeks but now it has stated crashing about every 10 minutes.

I do recognise that my ram is not on the tested list published by Gigabyte, but I am not convinced that that is really the problem having observed others replacing ram only to find that the problem persists.

I removed chrome and tried using just safari and firefox, but that does not seem to have helped.

Please advise of you have any ideas. Also, if Tony or Rehab man have any other suggestions I would be grateful.

I have a similar build with the freezing issue. Originally I used and i5 processor but just change to the i7-4770K hoping that would help. It didn't. Like several other people I am hoping to find some idea to fix it

Wildwillow, on a completely non-software related note, do you have your fans controlled by the mobo or are you using the fan controller?

Ideas. Firstly ensure that you're running the latest BIOS or at least F7. Other than the things you have tried I don't have any further suggestion for this issue, I can tell you that my system isn't freezing. I am using the onboard HD4600+GT640, I've enabled HDMI Audio for both graphics displays although I use Line out on the rear for 2.1. I have patched the AppleIntelFameBufferAzul.Kext. I'm using 2 SSDT's, one for HDMI Audio and one for power management. Everything on the list from Post#1 is the same.
