A single 8gb RAM stick is much less efficient than two 4gb sticks of RAM. All of that data is just going into one single channel, instead of going into two channels. Adding another 8gb stick that is the exact same model number to your system, could help improve performance greatly. Try that, and see if your results improve.

This video shows the benefits of a dual channel, over a single channel.
