Default Intel Smart Response? 128 SSD System, 500GB Other Programs, 32gb Cache?

So I have a GA-Z77X-UD5H version 1.1, it has a mSATA port integrated onto the mainboard.

128GB SSD (System Partition.)
2TB HDD - divided 500GB ~ Less frequented programs, 1.5TB - Data
300 GB HDD - From old PC, as just a backup at the moment.

What I was wondering, If i were to buy this crucial CT032M4SSD3 32GB mSATA SSD and put it on the mainboard, and enable intel Smart Response on my mainboard, would I be able to program it to ONLY cache data from the 500GB less frequent program drive? Would this be beneficial? Or is that not possible / would I be spinning my wheels. The other option is Crucial's Cache setup, would it work with that?

Thank you all soo much!

Crucial uses Dataplex, which as far as I know allows you to set caching only for a specific drive (in this case the 2TB HD).
