    How do you know it's slower? Did you check to make sure the 4 GB is registered? If so, do a pram reset.

    Are you sure the memory was installed correctly? Does the System Profiler recognize all the RAM you installed?

    Could there be a conflict? Apple Dual Channel RAM with Samsung Dual Channel RAM?

    Apple uses Samsung ram usually.
