Not so sure it does...
The rear ports are internally connected to the motherboard, you don't need to connect anything.

You plug the SATA cables into your motherboard's SATA headers... looks like this:

The blue ports... make sure you connect the cables the right way (align the "L")

It's likely the other end of the cable goes into a SATA device, such as a hard drive or DVD drive. If you don't have any devices, then you don't need the cable - you can just leave it empty. Is that any help?
