Could my second nvme be causing lock ups ?[solved]

So since I installed my 2nd Nvme drive on my asus prime z370-p ii (about a week ago, both are now samsung 970 evo plus using the mobo m2 slots), my pc has started to show some weird symptoms at first some nv**** i forget the name caused a bluescreen 2-3 days after install, and then some lock ups started to occur which got more frequent. I have made sure everything on mobo is getting the voltage but i'm still experiencing these lock ups.
Yes I have the samsung drivers for the nvme drives, I did initially have the mobo set to intel optane for some bazare reason but have now put that into ahci, I have done a complete clean install with just barebones and star citizen to have fun while hunting this aweful bug i'm sure i've had before on different systems over the years. There is not a single error in event log aside from the force shut down I have to do.
Now before I have to strip the loop down to take out the second nvme drive to see if it crashes without it, is that a strong possibility for the cause off the lock ups ?
If it's not that, then it's definitely something to do with windows itself. The crazy thing is it's like the more resources I use on the pc, the faster the lockup occurs, I can browse for 5 hours before it locks up, an hour just playing star citizen on the dot (give or take 5 mins), 20 mins if I have SC on, discord and some music going.

Another thing to note, when windows locks up, I can sometimes still play the game with no issues all with audio too until I close it :| TBH I don't know *** to setup these drives, in bios lol.

Well after doing a couple of windows clean installs the problem persisted, so I did the command prompt to check windows services and sfc scan which actually did find some corrupt files (on a clean install????), also after clearing cmos, the problem seems to be solved, 2 hours in and no lock ups so fingers crossed.

Sharing is the first step to solving all the problems of humanity.
