By default, mine shows DMA enabled, Ultra DMA mode 4.
There looks to be something wrong in the IO responce time of your SSD resulting in a penalty factor, and the disk sequential writes look low also. Those scores are way off which is why your average is only 5.9.
It may have to do with DMA but I'm not sure, I havn't tested it with DMA off. I don't have an AHCI setting with my mobo so can't use it. Maybe try a different SATA cable or something.
