Ok, that worked, right now, I'm looking at the Cmoss setup utility, can u explain to me what I should do from here?
Also, how does removing one RAM card do this?

Apply 2T Command rate, then save and exit.
the turn it off, and add the second stick again and try to boot

Nothing, I went and changed the frequency and manually changed it to 1333, but it did not do anything.

>>Use the MSI HQ Forum USB flasher<<
and flash back step back one by one until it can work with both sticks:

start from HA, if no change, go to H9 and so on.
