AMD Navi GPU frequent freezes on both Manjaro/Ubuntu with kernel 5.3 and mesa 19.2 -git/llvm9

I've tried my AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT on both ubuntu (llvm 9 / mesa 19.3 - Oibaf PPA) and Manjaro (llvm 10 git / mesa-git).
On both I've been using Gnome shell and in both cases I had frequent lockups and freezes. Once my GPU disconnected to Monitor and remained so until I rebooted, other times desktop would just freeze and crash the whole system.
Software tried: LLVM 10 git / MESA 19.3 - git on Manjaro
LLVM 9 / MESA 19.3 git from Oibaf PPA
Kernels tried: Manjaro 5.3 RC4, Ubuntu 5.3 RC5 generic, Ubuntu drm-tip 5.3 daily

Happened on all setups, bug was pretty much the same, lockups weren't extremely frequent but frequent enough that they were very noticable (5-6 freezes per day on average)
Faulty hardware is probably out of options since I never had a hiccup or anything even close to crash or freeze on my Windows desktop.
