Asus Sabertooth 990fx and Corsair memory problems urgent.

Good Day, my problem is this:
I have a Windows 7 ultimate 64bit, ASUS Sabertooth 990fx AM3+ Motherboard, AMD Phenom II X6 1090t processors and:

2 x Corsair Dominator CMD4GX3M2A1600C9 1600Mhz 4GB (2x2GB)

Well with previous configuration my computer works perfectly but three weeks ago, I buy two memorys more:

2 x Corsair Dominator CM3X2G1333C9D 1333Mhz 4GB (2x2GB)

Well my problem starts when I install the memorys and go to turn on the PC and when windows is initializing emerge the blue screen and I go to use MemOK! from ASUS and the next round, windows start perfectly.
When I turn off the computer and turn on again from zero, come back the blue screen again then I have to go to BIOS every time turn on the PC for starts windows fine.

This is the configuration of my BIOS if it means anything:










I could help from you to resolve my problem please. I would appreciate so much.

NOTE: Sorry for my english, I do not speak so much because I speak spanish.

Try clearing the CMOS (unplug the power cord and remove the CMOS battery for few minutes). Then start the board wth all RAM modules inserted.
If still the same, install CPU-Z, check the JEDEC values for both kits (installed separately) and manually set in BIOS the values that are similar for both kits.

I guess it's a translation. What's the exact message in your language?
By clearing the CMOS, the BIOS is set to default. Are there BIOS settings that you have to reapply (that you used before clearing the CMOS)?

The message appears is in windows not in BIOS buddy. For the moment I haven't problems with BIOS anymore

Some BIOS settings affect Windows (like SATA settings, for example). What's the message?
