ESATA question. How to hook up?

Ok so i just got the CoolerMaster HAF 932 case and It's got a eSATA connector on the front panel. All i see is a regular looking SATA wire coming from it. Do i just hook that up to a regular SATA port? Come on guys it can't be that easy to have eSATA. Don't I need some kind of eSATA socket on the mobo for eSATA?any help would be nice. If it just hooks up to a regular SATA port then im going to have a cow lol.

    Yeah, you just have to plug it into the Sata Port on the Mobo and it'll work fine.......

    Hooking it up IS that simple. Unless you have your mobo SATA ports configured as AHCI though, it won't be hot-swappable, meaning you'll most likely need a complete power-cycle to connect a drive to it.
