mSATA/SSD Related Question

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!

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