The EVGA SR-X has 2 such mSAS ports, what do they do exactly, do you connect fan out SATA cables for extra SATA connections, or what?

Correct. You can connect a mini-SAS to SATA fan-out cable to each port so you can have up to 8 additional SATA drives connected.

Any drives connected to the mini-SAS ports are limited to SATA 2 (3Gb/s) speeds.
