I imagine you are wondering about the random read performance, since all the other tests are a bit above the maximum specs, except for that one. It's true you may not always reach or exceed the maximum specs for a SSD, but you can try. It's virtually impossible to give you any help, since we don't have much detail about that PC, such as which drivers your are using, etc.
I noticed under your scores the message about configuring your system according to recommendations in the OS Optimization menu. I don't see that message with my Samsung SSDs, since I used that feature. Any reason why you have not done that? It might help increase that score.
The firmware update on my 840 Pro was simple and did not disturb anything, I would not worry about that.
