i need some advice please I would like to install a second m.2 ssd but Im not sure if it is possible and I dont quite understand the speed sharing between the pci lanes. In the first PCIe 3.0 x16 is my msi GTX 1080ti gpu second PCIe 3.0 x16 is empty and in the third PCIe 3.0 x1 is a rme raydat audio interface.
If I buy a adapter for my second m.2 ssd with this adapter DELOCK PCIe x4 > 1 x M.2 NGFF and install it in the second PCIe 3.0 x16 under the gpu does it throttle anything? gpu or cpu etc.?

This board(crosshair vi) doesnt have a second m2 slot. You are talking about the crosshair vii board!
