I'm not sure about this as I have never had to deal with something like that
myself. However, I think that when adding more RAM, you should also add more
Cache to your system - otherwise performance may drop as described by you.
Don't ask me, though, how one is supposed to add more cache to a mainboard...

If my above assumption is not right, I hope that someone will share the
actual facts with you and me ;-)
