Problem with my SSD 840 EVO , can't reach max IOPS.. why?

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!!!!!

    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.

  7. Have you "Optimized" your Windows installation via Samsung's Magician?

    Or do it manually, like this: http://www.thessdreview.com/ssd-guides/optimization-guides/the-ssd-optimization-guide-ultimate-windows-8-edition/

    What other SATA devices do you have?
