My samsung 970 EVO NVMe M.2 SSD 500GB is only doing 1800mbps in crystaldiskmark. From what ive seen it should be doing 3400mbps.

Im really not that good with computers. So i was hoping for some help here, samsung magician says the same.

It would appear that you have the 970 in the wrong M.2 port.

1 x M.2 Socket 3, with M key, type 2242/2260/2280 storage devices support (PCIE 3.0 x 4 mode)*
1 x M.2 Socket 3, with M Key, type 2242/2260/2280 storage devices support (SATA & PCIE 3.0 x 2 mode)

The x2 is limiting the speed of that drive.
Move it to the other M.2 port and see what happens.
