Are you plugged in to the black SATA ports? If you have SATA port 4/5 set to IDE or RAID make sure you are not plugged in to those. Did you do a fresh install after changing the BIOS to AHCI?
I would also suggest you enable RAID5 support even if you don't use it, I needed to do it to get full performance from my SSD's even though I don't use it.
BTW, I have the same MB and I know it inside and out
