I have a Samsung Evo 120GB SSD and MSI X87-G45 motherboard. I know this is a stupid question but should I connect it to the mSATA or just the regular SATA 6GB/s port? Thanks for any help!

Unless you bought an msata drive or an msata to sata adapter the drive wont fit in the msata port...

The Samsung EVO only has a SATA port; it does not have an mSATA port so you can't connect it to the mSATA port on your motherboard.
Connect the EVO to the 1st Intel 6Gb/s port on your board.

Thanks. Just wanted to make sure that it wasn't better to buy the adapter for mSATA.
