No, my bug did not seem to be that problem. It would not freeze but just reboot. 
Oddly it got worst as time when on. Initial I could boot into Ubuntu, then only 
to grub, then eventually it would reboot as grub was loading.

When the CPU was replaced with another Ryzen CPU everything worked fine. I have 
not had a reboot or freeze since then.

By the way I was stymied trying to diagnose the problem so I took it to Memory 
Express where I bought the parts. They charge $50 for the first hour and did 
figure out that it was the CPU. I was pleased with their work. Never charged 
more than that first hour.
