Hi all, new to the mac community, I installed16gb of ram (upgrading from the std 4gb) into my mid-2012 13" Macbook pro, checked the ram manufacturers website (crucial, corsair, kingston) for the ram specific to the system, (picked crucial) everything seems ok checked the hardware tests and system info to make sure the system recognizes the ram but now bootup and when I run a tasks, safari etc, seem to take longer to respond, any reason for this thanks in advance for the help

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
