Tested it and it happens with me too, though about 5 seconds of a freeze. That's not to say anything is wrong, IBT puts a huge strain on the whole system. Mainly occurred at the beginning and end of a run when it was loading and unloading memory.
yea thats alot of services to start up. chrome 10 exe. services plus all those tabs open .. i would expect it to freeze...
Ok, I did some testing with my old Xeon and new Ryzen setups. The old one originally had Win 10 Home which I upgraded to Win 10 Pro after brief testing. After trying the Home edition with Xeon and Pro with both Xeon and Ryzen I’m starting to believe that there’s difference in thread scheduling between Home and Pro: I tried the "IBT + Chrome test" on Home edition about 20 times and it never froze. Home edition had no problems handling more running threads than what the hardware can run simultaneously. Even with 128 threads (with my own test app) running calculations the system was still usable. The application causing the load itself got "Not responding" few times. When doing the same thing with Pro hick ups and freezing started showing quite quickly after passing hardware thread limit. If you change active application (if you can) to some other than the one causing the load the situation seems to get better. Also the original "IBT + Chrome test" froze every time I tried it on Pro edition.
I uploaded videos demonstrating the issue. I used a simple self made app where you can select the number of thread doing sqrt(x) / x calculation. Tests were run in safe mode to minimize the effect of background applications. Here are some highlights:

As this seems to be more operating system related I might be heading to MS / Windows forums with this question. If anyone here has suggestions how to improve Win 10 Pro behavior in this case I’d be glad to hear them though. Of course, the obvious solution is not to cause this kind of system overloading
it burns the cpu and stresses the board. once done put the program away as the cpu is burned in and cooler is set. the expansion and contraction proccess is done and board is not defective.
use a regular stress test once burned in. !! you only burn a cpu in once or twice at most. dah faq
have you tried enabling the opcache in ryzen . this would allow any miss fired data from the L2 and L3 cache threads to be Quede and not lost but reorganized and sent out when resource is able too. but this also consumes more power and not windows related , just an idea.
