Try /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches

Plus several other settings from /proc/sys/vm/

vfs_cache_pressure, max_map_count, dirty_expire_centisecs for example.

You already played with /proc/sys/vm/swappiness? default value is 60

It might also be of benefit to compare the kernel-desktop vs
kernel-default settings. See /boot/config-VESRION-[default,desktop]

See /etc/sysctl.conf with a hint to man pages in the header.

Very likely you'll get much better feedback on the kernel list.
