M10H - SSD cache + HDD or Intel Optane

Level 7
Hi guys,
I have built the system with 500GB NVMe SSD as a boot drive and also I have 4TB WD Red for storage.
I am installing games on the HDD, because I would run out of space rather quickly if I installed them on the SSD and I would like to accelerate the game loading time from HDD.
My question is.. can boot SSD be used for example with two partitions, one as SSD boot drive and second one as a cache for the HDD?Or do you think better option (since M10H has two M.2 slots) would be to use the NVMe SSD for boot drive and add let's say 60GB Intel Optane to act as a cache for HDD?
