Why would suPHP work faster than fastCGI?

    Hello community!
    I have a very strange situation, which drives me crazy.
    Physical server, 4 core, 4gbram, raid10 disks, a ton of different sites.
    So far it had PHP configured as suPHP and the only major problem was little spikes of visitors, which created a bit high load. I decided to upgrade few things (like mysql 5.0->5.5, apache to latest 2.2.24, whm). Done that... Even set mysql temp folder to a tmpfs. And also changed PHP from suPHP to fastCGI (since it is so easy to set maximum number of processes per user there). And suddenly load jumped sky high... Turned back to suPHP - load dropped. Tried fastCGI again, even with different MPM - no change - fastCGI=load is high, suPHP=load is "ok".

    And this does not fit my head. Has anyone encourted similar situation or has any explanation, that would expalain it?

    Regards,
    Anton Aleksandrov
