How?Cloning-Data: 2.5"SSD to M.2ssd(new)

Hello LTT community. I need some good advice from people that have experiences SSD's particularly in cloning current data to a newer M.2 ssd. So I'm about to start my new i7-7700k build, and really wanted to start using M.2 ssd's as my main boot' and store my games & software for a much faster read & write speeds, what i was using my current (Samsung 850Evo 500Gb SSD) before. And what I want to do is salvage my 'still very quick 500gb ssd' and use it as my secondary ssd device (Mass-Storage) and incorporate the new Samsung 960 Evo 250gb/M.2/NVME/SSD as my primary #1Storage for (Games,software) into my new 7700K build. Since i really dont have that much data on my current 2.5"500gb/Ssd idk if cloning that data from my 2.5" 500Gb/ssd To-my new 240gb/M.2 would even be worth the time & effort. Consider-Option#1:'To just save my Pictures/Documents and Literally 1 Game to a USB stick, and just start my new/clean Windows 10 install and dl-my data off my usb/flash drive. Or option 2: Just completely wipe the 2.5" ssd, delete everything on it and start clean Win10 install (And save my important pictures/documents on my flash drive) then once everything goes smoothly (hopefully) to-reinstall all my programs and my one game i play (csgo) really not much data. Idk, im not really experienced in ssd cloning, i know i can just research this on youtube, and i have. But wanted to get some advice from ltt community. 

I guess my question is, whats the safest way to Wipe my 2.5" SSD clean?? And is there a way in the Uefi/Bios where i can easily sort this out. I know in bios on the Raid' application you can set which drive you want to boot your pc from. To set primary to secondary drives. But in Asus Bios is there a feature where i can transfer data and pick & choose what Programs I would want transferring into my new M.2 ssd??

To clone use something like Clonezilla, Gparted, or Norton Ghost.

 

To wipe the drive "clean", right click Start>Disk Management>make a note of the disk number of the drive you wanna wipe. Open a CMD prompt>type "select disk x" where x is the disk number (and minus the quotation marks) then just type clean and press enter. Done.

Probably gaming or helping technophobes with tech...
