I'm facing a problem that I've never seen before. I want to load i3 with my new installation of Arch Linux but when I launch startx, the tty is freezing with no error. I've checked the log of xorg, I didn't see any error.

The answer was a problem with the Nvidia drivers. Thanks to @bgregs for the additional help. So in order to solve it, I've uninstall the nvidia drivers then uninstall all xorg programs. After reinstall xorg and configure it for your own.
The DISPLAY is not defined correctly in xorg.conf, or the user's environment, perhaps? Thus, the repeated message: Can't open display, DISPLAY is not set Not sure, but investigating that angle may help you.
