I can't really answer about the swaps, although it's hard to see how it
would enhance anything. In your case, it probably doesn't matter too
much anyway since you have a good amount of RAM. I'm sure you'll get
some answers and theories on that though...
But I do appreciate you posting the information about the f option (fix
partition order). I wasn't aware of that one. I don't use fdisk too
much, but good to know the option is there.
