Try reseating your memory and put one stick of the old on each channnel and one stick of the new on each channel. Understand that when all four modules are recognized, your memory timings are going to drop from T1 to T2 so you may not get quite the improvement you originally thought possible.

What happens if you remove the two original modules & install only the two new ones? Remember to insert the new modules in the same ram slots that the old ones came out of.
