Speedstep is a BIOS feature. You might try the latest BIOS from your MB Mfg. Speedstep is not the likely cause of your system freezing up on restart.
Some boards have a problem with all 4 RAM slots filled and 4 modules from 2 different manufacturers might be causing an issue especially if they are rated at different latencies. I looked on their site but I couldn't find a listing of compatible RAM so you might want to take a look or contact MSI. I agree with badge though that speedstep probebly isn't your problem.
