If all you need exists in x86_64, there is no need to use i386

You may try to uninstall all all non x86_64 and noarch packages (doing
test run first):

rpm -qa --qf "%{NAME}.%{ARCH}\n" | grep -v 'x86_64\|noarch\|gpg-pubkey' > list
rpm --test -e $(cat list)

You can remove all i386 packages with this command:

yum remove \*.i?86
