If all your traffic is over the LAN, and you have a machine and application tuned for the extra-low latencies that a LAN can offer, then setting LAN-grade targets for Cake might make sense.  But most people's traffic is a mixture, with the performance of Internet traffic being more important, and that is better served by the *default* settings.

You ran fq_codel at its default settings.  These are equivalent to Cake's default settings, so far as the AQM activity is concerned.  I'm just asking for a like-to-like comparison.  You could be pleasantly surprised.
