I doubt it's running slower, but what makes you think it would run any faster?

Unless you run a program (or programs) that can actually take advantage of 18GB RAM, your system will run no different than it did with 6GB. As for what speed your RAM is, shouldn't you have checked that before you added more? Did you manually configure the memory settings in the BIOS? Did you test the RAM with memtest86+ before putting it into service?

CPU-Z can read what you memory is running at for each slot and also can list the optional settings that each stick can run at. If you can understand what you are reading and if you know how to take advantage of this information by resetting your memory manually in your BIOS to run at it's optimal settings for the combination. There are still some things like voltage differences and extreme differences in latency that may make the memory incompatible with each other. You should have run the test on crucial's website before adding more memory to see what would be compatible.
As mentioned, unless you are running Photoshop and/or a few other programs that actually can use the massive amount of memory, having more than your original amount of memory, is probably a waste of money.
I am running 4GB memory with Windows 7 64bit and although I have a compatible set with an additional 4GB that I definitely can use (I sent back a bad set for replacement but purchased a spare set so I did not have to wait), I have not bothered to install it. I do not really need it for my uses and you probably do not either.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Bus speed of RAM and Mother Board is related to each other. This speed must be supported by the number of Operating System bit. More RAM does not mean 'faster' PC. After some point the payback diminishes. For example, XP's sweet spot is 1.0GB. Vista appears to be 2.0GB and we happily ran Windows 2000 and NT 4.0 on 512MB.
