Default Ram issues

Hi im having a problem since 2 weeks where my PC is really slow when im booting. I went from 45sec booting to 2-3min

Mobo: ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA1366 DDR3 CrossFireX SLI 3PCI-E16 2PCI-E1 PCI USB 3.0 Motherboard
ram: Corsair Vengeance 12GB 3X4GB DDR3-1600 CL9-9-9-24 XMP Triple Channel Core i7 Memory
video card: MSI N570GTX Twin Frozr II OC GeForce GTX 570 Fermi 732MHZ 1280MB 3.8GHZ GDDR5 PCI-E 2XDVI Video Card
CPU: Intel Core i7 960 Quad Core Processor LGA1366 3.2GHZ Bloomfield 8MB LGA1366 4.8GT/S
PSU: Coolermaster Silent Pro Gold 1000W SLI CrossFire 80+GOLD ATX12V 24PIN Active PFC 135mm Fan PSU

So the problem is when i try to change my ram speed after i save and reload my pc will freeze when i get on the desktop. I also have the same problem when i put the XMP option in the bios. I already upgrade my bios version and did all i knew but now im really lost

Do i have to do anything else to get my pc's speed back to where it was ?

If you need any more info plz feel free to ask

I tried many different settings, voltage, etc

but right now everything is set to default because everytime i try to change it to 9-9-9-24 and the speed to 1600 with the proper voltage, my PC just crashed at the Microsoft color bubble screen

So now i have 12gb of ram at 1066, 8-8- something instead of 1600 9-9-9-24

My System Specs

I have the same ram as you. I am able to run it at 1600MHz 9,9,9,24,1T, 1.5v. You should try running at at 2T. After you set the timing, did you run memtest86+? If it fails, try one stick at a time. BTW, I did not use XMP.
