I'm just wondering why can't I reach the max IOPS? I mean .. Am I doing something wrong?
Specs:

MoBo: DP67BG Intel Extreme Edition
SSD: Samsung 840 EVO (it's new)
Cable SATA: It comes with the MoBo , don't know if it's SATA 2 or 3 (maybe that's the problem?)
CPU: Core i7 2600 (non - K)
RAM: 8GB GSkill Sniper

Here are some pictures with and without RAPID mode enabled


RAPID MODE ENABLED





RAPID MODE DISABLED



So guys , what's the problem? I also entered to the BIOS to disable this opts...



General Optimization and USB optimization are disabled.. I just wanted to try if boot time would be faster and it was.. but now I can't enter BIOS anymore :c

Help me please!!!!!

Best solution

That mobo has both SATA II (3Gb/s) and SATA III (6 Gb/s) SATA ports. Be sure that you have the EVO plugged into a SATA III port.

In the BIOS screenshot that you posted, there is a Corsair drive listed under the HDD section. Would this drive be plugged into the SATA III port that you need?

Here is a quick video on Intel Fast Boot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHIsiBwdju8
In order to disable FB, hold down the power switch for at least 2 seconds. Watch the vid for further details.

Thank you soooo much for your answer! Let me tell you that I only used that image as an example , that's not an screenshot from my PC , I found it on Google Images just to show you what I've done , so my drive says "Samsung blablabla" I will watch the video right now.. But I still can't reach the max IOPS :C , do you think maybe I need to buy a SATA 3 6gb/s cable? Or that's just crappy marketing? Thanks again!

You're quite welcome.

No you don't need a different cable. That is just marketing BS. All SATA cables are the same. Just be sure that it is plugged into the right port on your mobo.

I think it's in the right place because it has 6 SATA ports , 2 are Blue and the others are black , so I guess those 2 are SATA 3 6gb/s and the other 4 are 3gb/s right? So what's the problem then? :/ 
No reaching the max IOPS could increase booting time?

Yes, it does have 6 SATA ports but not all are the same speed. You need to be plugged into one of the Blue ports for maximum speeds.
