um, probably.
what are the rest of your system specs?
how do you mean "slower", ie what are you measuring it against?

Sometimes you must monitor your memory timing speeds, often they change automatically depending on how much you overclock your FSB.

For example:
2.5-4-4-7 might become 3-4-4-9 after overclocking.

Ultimately making your computer slower. You can either attempt to manually set your memory timings (only if you have good quality memory would I do this), or find a nice balance between FSB overclock and memory timings increase.

you should always monitor the temps when you overclock
