I am having an issue with SATA performance and my SSD drive with my X58 motherboard. I have narrowed it down to the motherboard due to the fact that I benchmarked the drive in another computer and the results in A SSD were in line with the results here:
Currently the results in my machine with the X58 Sabertooth are around 100 composite score. This lousy performance started happening after I flashed the BIOS up to 0603 to fix blue screen issues. This issue is not resolved when I roll back to the 505 bios.
Any thoughts/help/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

The only thing I'm seeing between the Guru image and yours is the Firmware version. Your showing 3.1 and their is 310A. I would maybe look to update your SSD firmware and re-test. Also, you are on the MSACHI drivers and they are on the Intel drivers ( ICH10R)... it looks like
If you changes from IDE -> AHCI after installing an OS chances are that you may have corrupted the registry. The simplest solution is to move the SATA 1 -> SATA 2 ports, also don't have the DVD in the first 4 ports.
The 4K is a lousy comparison for the SSD; I prefer ATTO Benching.
Well that sucked! Set the SATA3 to AHCI and use/try the SATA3 port. I assume when testing that you disabled any AV software, and the you did NOT install ANY of the ASUS 'Utilities' -> if you did then uninstall them, OR run MSCONFIG select Diagnostic and re-run tests.
Also, G.SKILL is using 1024K vs your 103424K sized test; also looking at their 'font' they've turned-off EVERYTHING!
You missed my earlier post "Also, G.SKILL is using 1024K vs your 103424K sized test; also looking at their 'font' they've turned-off EVERYTHING!" Everthing - Aero, etc - G.SKILL's test rig has only bare bones Windows running...
