Completed a new build and noticed that during the boot screen it only shows 1 m.2 and if I power off the PSU and turn it back on I start showing 2 again . Also I get a lot of crashing freezing and slow performance until I reset the PSU. Do i need a new PSU or could it be the MOBO or something else?

CPU looks to be bouncing around tj max and possibly throttling is the first thing i see. This could cause performance issues.

What CPU cooler do you have? What is the make and model of PSU?

Click on the errors and see what they say.

I have a custom hard tubing water loop that servicing CPU and GPU 16mm tubing with 480mm rad that I think is overkill. PSU is a EVGA SuperNOVA 1300W G2 . CPU block
 
Something may be wrong with your loop. As for what, i dont know much about custom loops.

Your 8700k should never be hitting close to 100c with a 480mm rad and custom loop. The fact that the CPU is bouncing off of 100c indicates thermal throttling lowering performance and making performance unstable.

I do see your CPU is running somewhere around 5ghz, so maybe overclocked. Try clearing the overclock to see if the throttling stops.

Yeah I agree but that wouldn't explain one of the m.2 not being recognized during boot unless I turn the PSU off and on.

I appreciate all the feedback and I will definitely look forward to addressing the temp issues but does anyone know what would cause my m.2 issue? I have no idea where to lean with this one.
