The problem is probably your nut.
The holes the old strings made there are too big for your new ones, thats why they make a buzzing sound when played.
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race toward an early grave.

It could be that Gal, but I recently changed my BEADG to EADGC, and considering I went down an average of .20 on each string, I'm not noticing any significant buzz. I'm putting my money on a technique issue. Make sure to press down quite hard onto the string, and make sure to fret right on the edge of the fret. If that still doesn't help it I'm not really sure what's up. Maybe try slightly raising the action again.
