Connect your SSD to one of the SATA 3 (6Gb/s) ports.
In your motherboard's BIOS make sure that the port your SSD is connected to is in AHCI mode.
If you are going to install Windows on the SSD don't connect any other drives until after installation is complete.
Run WEI after the installation is complete which will automatically disable defragmenting of the SSD.
