Ryzen issues on FreeBSD ?

With the Intel issues exposed in meltdown, we were looking at possibly
deploying some Ryzen based servers for FreeBSD. We got a pair of
ASUS PRIME X370-PRO and
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600X Six-Core Processor (3593.34-MHz
Origin="AuthenticAMD" Id=0x800f11 Family=0x17 Model=0x1 Stepping=1
Everything is at its default in the BIOS, no overclocking etc.
However, we are seeing random lockups on both boxes. It doesnt seem to
correspond with load/activity. And its a hard lockup. Keyboard not
responsive and I cant break to serial debugger, so it doesnt seem to be
an issue with something in the kernel going into deadlock.
It sort of feels like a hardware issue, but it seems odd that both boxes
are showing the same issue with random lockups like that. It could be
twice in a day or once every 3 days.
Anyone have any insights ? Anyone have any suggestions about better
motherboards out there ? We are waiting for Supermicro's Epyc
availability, but nothing yet. It would be nice if we could find a
board with at least some hardware watchdog on it.
