Game installs lagging Windows 10

Greetings all!

I’ve attempted to install and run both Killing Floor 2 and Apex Legends on my system. It’s a brand new prebuilt from NZXT and it runs flawlessly... until... I installed these two games. Been running AC Valhalla so well and a few other games. I’ve installed them both through Steam and Origin. After install and running it up, on the next system boot everything gets wild. Programs barely start or wont at all(like game launchers), sometimes an SSD will vanish from file explorer or FE barely loads, and the system runs like it’s stuck in the mud. After I restore it, all is well! I was thinking maybe Direct X or C++ is an issue? Just looking for some insight before I throw a new Windows install on. I’m going to do one last check of all drivers as well. 
Specs: 
Ryzen 7 3700X
16 GB Trident Z Skill RAM
MSI VENTUS OC 3080
X570 Aorus Master Mobo

All drives are WD. 256 M.2 for drive, 500GB M.2/2.5” 500GB for games.

Hello!

Unfortunately the problem still persists. I have updated BIOS/Windows/all other known drivers. Still the issue with when I run certain games for the first time, system slows down after restart. I have never seen or heard of this before. I believe I may just have to do a clean windows install
