I recently built a new pc. Installed windows on an ssd. All good. Went to disk manger, tried creating a new simple volume on the hdd and disk manager would froze. Afer a while, the new hdd showed up as drive 1 and RAW alongside an error prompt of 'format failed to complete'.
Any ideas as to how this might happen?

First I would try another SATA cable and verify the connections.
if this still fails to do anything I suggest booting into Linux and see if linux can format the drive or otherwise use it.

If both OS's fail to address the format issues I would suggest running diagnostics on the drive. the maker should have diagnostics programs available on their website. download and run the tools and see what they say.
sounds like the drive is on the way out.
