Freeze every 5 seconds on any action. Long time bug

Hi. My system is very slow and unusable. I am tired of this nvidia card, but this bug appeared since version 17. After reboot all seems to work well, but after sometime, system freezes every few seconds for a few seconds.
When you type in console, there is a noticeable delay when typing, when you watch vidoes, every few seccnds screen freezes. Totally unusable, until reboot. After reboot system works well for a few hours. This happens long time, after mesa 17 was releases and mesa 13 was disappeared from gentoo portage. Mesa 13 was the only well-working setup. 17 was in beta, I tried it and then reverted back. Now I don't know what to do... nvidia drivers also don't work well.
I tried mesa 18 but sddm does not start.
My setup: mesa 17.2.8 (considered latest stable in gentoo) Gentoo hardened 4.9.24-grsec Nvidia GTX 660 (GK106) nouveau.config="NvGrUseFw=1" (and a few blobs, without this system freeze and image is damaged) everything else is updated to latest ~amd64 versions. 4 monitors
