Help with the storage compatibility problem

Hi guys I was just wondering if someone could help me, this is my first build and Ive received a compatibility error saying this: The motherboard M.2 slot #0 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6Gb/s ports are disabled.

However I know that my motherboard has 6xSATA ports so does that mean I should ignore this error as I currently have 1 samsung 250gb SSD and 1x WD 3tb HDD and I already received a M.2 saumsung SM915 SSD as a present. Could someone advise what I should do am I in the clear ? Im so nervous because im spending so much money. Sorry for being a noob guys

... ignore this error...

Yes.
Do not use the SATA ports mentioned in your mobo manual.
You can download the mobo manual from the MSI.
