No. You can only have one Optane Memory module accelerating one SATA drive.

 

I recommend you obtain a M.2 NVMe SSD to use as your system drive in place of that SATA SSD. A good one won't require any acceleration assistance. Then you can use your (one) Optane module to accelerate the performance of your (one) secondary/data HDD.

 

Hope this helps,
