I've had this build for a few years and it was pretty solid in the beginning. Now the two main issues I'm having:

Almost daily my onboard NIC will stop passing traffic. I resolve the issue with ifconfig en0 down/up and it's back to normal. I have also had issues with uploading files via web pages and sites like facebook messenger. This is mainly a digital audio workstation so it doesn't get browsed on a lot. It's main use is to run Logic X 10.1.1

Less frequently but even more annoying, the operating system will freeze up. I get the spinning "thinking" icon as a mouse cursor. Can't open programs, or apple menu to quit programs. I have to restart to resolve this. Not 100% confirmed and doesn't happen every time but it seems like when I leave chrome open it's more likely to freeze.

I've looked through the logs and don't see anything obvious. Where else can I look? I thought I remember reading that there's a cache of some sort that can cause issues?

I really really don't want to go through rebuilding this

Any help is greatly appreciated.

@hubb_99, please update your profile (personal details) with your Motherboard (Mobo), CPU and Graphics Card.

OSx Mavericks is not a motherboard

"Onboard" for graphics is a bit vague

try again please

Ok thanks. Now that we got that settled, can someone give me some advice on how to fix the problems I'm experiencing with my build? I've scoured the forums and not seeing any issues similar to mine.
