I'm having problems using M.2 SSD on my machine, it's causing a lot of blue screens, with different errors. The problem started when I bought my first M.2, an XPG S41 TUF SSD, which started to cause several blue screens, I thought that the SSD was broked, and I ended up requesting another one, however the error continued and I preferred to just ask the money back. After that happened, I bought another M.2 from Kingston, to see if it was the compatibility, but the problems continued. Thinking the problem was with the motherboard, I ended up switching my b350m to b550m and it didn't work either. ALl blue screens are different, and I don't know what is the problem, I tried to run some RAM tests and found nothing.

I updated my BIOS for the old and new motherboard, updated all the drivers, and the error keeps going.

I used the M.2 with Ubuntu and the OS froze.

Hardware:
CPU: Ryzen 5 3500x
Motherboard: MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk
GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Galax
RAM: 2x 8GB XPG Gammix D30
Power Supply: Gigabyte GP-P450B 450W, 80 Plus
SSD: Kingston NV1 500GB, M.2 2280 NVMe
HD: HD 1TB SATA

Check it out all BSOD from today:

Did you reinstall windows after changing motherboard?

This exactly is one of reasons, why it is recommended to reinstall windows after motherboard change.

Another thing to check - if ram is running at appropriate settings. Use CPU-Z, show screenshots from spd and memory sections.
PSU could also be a suspect.

yes I did, after change the motherboard I need to reinstall the windows on the SSD because the motherboard did not recognize the old boot.

CPU-Z info:

My RAM is 3200mhz, but the config is default in BIOS, so I didn't change it.

That shows you have a bazooka your post says a tomahawk?

Did this ram come as a kit or 2 separate sticks?
Is the ram in the proper slots?
Sorry, it's Bazooka.

there are 2 separate sticks and the RAM's are installed in the second and fourth slot, because the cooler is taking up a little more space and I can't install it in the first slot

That did not help.
Do try the xmp as mentioned.
Then run UBM to see if it made a diff.
I enabled the XMP, but my CPU was very slow, so I'll reinstall windows and after that I send you the results

I installed Pop!_OS on my SATA SSD too, and it's normal, no freezing or bugs with the xmp enabled.
