Stability issues with 17.50 on Ubuntu 16.04

I'm currently running Ubuntu 16.04.3 with the linux-image-generic-hwe-16.04 a version 4.13.0.32.52 (current). I'm getting some hardware lockups. It doesn't matter if I'm in a hardware accelerated game or just on my desktop environemnt (mate). When it locks up, the whole machine freeze and the only way to get out of it is a hard reboot. I haven't seen anything in the logs to help me determine the issue.

 

This wasn't the case when I was previously using the A8-7600 's integrated Radeon R7 GPU in the same computer. 

 

I disabled the APU's GPU and installed an RX 570. I switched over the the Ubuntu HWE kernel and graphics stack and installed the amdgpu-pro 17.50-511655 driver. After fighting with removing some old fglrx drivers from the previous GPU, I was able to compile and load the amdgpu(-pro) driver successfully. Now I'm getting the random freezes that require the hard reboot to recover from.

 

Any ideas?
