Ok so i had 2GB ram DDR-2 800 and i decided to upgrade and add 2 more.Now i have 4 x 1GB slots dual channel.The thing is after i installed the new ram my pc went slower.The CPU dropped it's performance and it's constantly working on 60%-100%.After i try to start some programs or games things got even worse.I even re-run the windows rating system and i go EXTREMELY low scores on CPU(from 6.0 to 3.7) and on graphics - desktop performance for windows aero(from 7.2 to 2.9).Please help.

My configuration:

Motherboard:Intel DPP3510J
RAM:4GB DDR2 800
CPU:Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 2.33GHz

I did the memtest and there were no errors.I think there is some problem with my motherboard.
