Your motherboard has 4 SATA 3 (6Gb/s) ports.

Make sure your SSD is connected to one of the 2 Intel 6Gb/s ports (SATA6G_1 or SATA6G_2), not to one of the Marvel 6Gb/s ports (SATA6G_E1 or SATA6G_E2).
See page 2-2 of your motherboard manual for the location of the ports.

Also, your intel ports need to be set in AHCI mode in the bios but if its not then do not change it. Come back here and let us know and we can walk you thru making the necessary changes otherwise you will just crash.
