Pochi_D No freezes still. So it seems that disabling Cstates has done the trick.
The PC still has trouble during restarts, but it isn't anything critical (I hope).

Thanks for everyones suggestions.

Pochi_D No freezes since disabling cstates.
It could be because I'm leaving Remote Desktop or some applications on to keep the CPU from idling, but I'll test without when I can.

I initially had the monitor go to sleep after a while which mean't it froze on the black screen, but now without sleep on it locks on the last thing that was displayed.
The PC is most definitely frozen in this state without any response to input.

I will now try disabling CStates. I don't think is a specific option for C6 but there is one for Cstates in general.

Pochi_D This might be the first time the PC hasn't frozen overnight.
I switched the "Power Supply Idle Control" to "Typical Current Idle".

Will give an update after a day or two.

I appreciate all the help.

Pochi_D Tried newest OS, no dice.

Does any of this apply to your system? I'm not familiar with threadripper.

"None of the above made any difference. So, in conclusion, the only thing that helped was to set the "Power Supply Idle Control" to "Typical Current Idle". Haven't had a single freeze since then.
The only drawback is that the VCore doesn't drop to 0.4 volts anymore, but stays at 0.8 minimum. I can live with that - haven't seen the temps raise at all.

I'm still very much confused about the purpose of that option. Modern power supply units should all be perfectly capable of handling low currents, or at least since "Haswell" came out - there were some notable problems with its C6/C7 states.

If you're having similar freezes at idle, check if your BIOS has this option and try to set it. It might help you.

PS: None of this applies if you have overclocked your system or disabled Cool'n'Quiet. At that point it's pretty much granted that you have set your VCore manually."
Yep, this looks like the exact same problem.
This has got to be it. I will give some of these settings a go.
Thanks a heap.

I went with this one solely from the amount of positive reviews for it.
