Hello so I'm buying 2 M.2 NVME SSD. I have one for windows and drivers and on for games and programs. Now the part I'm having trouble with is one m.2 slot is power (or something Im not sure) by the cpu and the other is powered by the chipset.
3rd gen AMD Ryzen processors-1x M.2 Socket 3 with M key Type 2242-22110 storage devices support (PCIE 4.0 x4 and sata mode)

AMD X570 Chipset
-1x M.2 Socket 3 with M key type 2242-22110
(PCIE 4.0 X4 and sata mode) storage devices support

My question is where should I put the windows on in order to get the fastest start up.

Thank you!

Which exact MB ? X570 chipset is capable of driving NVME (x4) in 2 sockets.
 
Im getting the Asus ROG Strix x570-E
Both M.2 sockets are same PCIe v4 x4 and therefore same speed when using 3rd gen Ryzen
1 x M.2 Socket 3, with M Key, Type 2242/2260/2280/22110(PCIE 4.0 x4 and SATA modes) storage devices support
1 x M.2 x4 Socket 3, with M Key, Type 2242/2260/2280/22110(PCIE 4.0 x4 and SATA modes) storage devices support
