- Install the kernel for more optimisation. Linux ZEN provides better stability for any processors and also provides more speed in general (including gaming). It is only recommended for desktop users because the ZEN kernel uses as much power as the default kernel.
- Install the AUR kernel which contains patches that is designed to improve system responsiveness with specific emphasis on the desktop, but suitable to any workload. The CK kernel is recommended for laptop users as it's intended to be very power efficient.
Reconfigure GRUB to use the kernel(s) you have installed so you can boot into it/them next time. If you do not use GRUB, you will have to create a configuration file to use the kernel(s) for your bootloader.
Enable Microcode Support
Install the package to enable microcode updates and enable it with the help of the Microcode page. These updates provide bug fixes that can be critical to the stability of your system. It is highly recommended to use it despite it being proprietary.
