  2. I would have to go with the black one. The other ones look more like a eSATA slot, but my monitor isn't the best.

    It seems like only red ports are SATA3 on this motherboard, and orange is SATA2. Which means, you would need to connect SSD to red port. I would move DVD to orange slot (SATA2 has enough bandwidth) to make place for SSD.

    Connect SSD to any of red sata ports. Those are SATA3.
