According to motherboard specs it has following M.2 ports:
1 x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 SATA and PCIe 3.0 x4/x2* SSD support) (M2A_SOCKET)
1 x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280 PCIe 2.0 x4/x2 SSD support) (M2B_SOCKET)
Both your M.2 SSDs are SATA type however you mobo can support only one SATA M.2 SSD. The second M.2 port can only support PCIe SSD.
