    Which raid card to buy for raid 6?

    Eight 4TB WD Re (7,200 RPM) drives in RAID 6. Very soon about to get four 8TB drives (maybe six) in RAID6. Ah, I have the previous gen LSI 9260-8i. No issues at all, except expect the lifespan of the cache vault battery to be around 2-3 years. I have no idea how you guys keep your sanity with the 10k and 15k drives...haha. ...Oh, I just realized the original post was from October.

    i7 3820

    Shhh...let them buy new ones so I can still get cheap used ones. haha

    SAS to SATA

    SAS 12 Gb/s is downward compatible to 6Gb/s, but your main issue here is that you need a SAS supporting motherboard or RAID / HBA card.

    i7 3820

    The cheap bandaid fix would be to get a overclockable sandy / ivy bridge CPU for X79 (Ideally six core). I doubt you'll have much issue, but it's mostly clock speed that would hold you back if anything (Depends on game of course). I'm stuck on sandy bridge as well because 32GB of DDR4 costs so much. 2700K at 4.9 GHz still kicking strong though (Hoping to get an 8700K used)

    SAS to SATA

    You need a SAS RAID or HBA card if you want to access SAS drives (I doubt a consumer motherboard would have SAS support). I would sell it and get a normal SATA drive as mentioned above.
  6. Sadly that's more device dependent in my experience. Some devices (certain phones) really do not want to change to a different AP sadly. At least with UniFi APs, you can set it so that below a certain signal strength range, the AP will disconnect the device (forcing the device to join a different AP with better signal)

    Powerful router for gigabit ISP + IDS/IPS

    If I remember right, the USG gets crippled to 85 Mb/s if enabling IPS/IDS. I think the USG Pro does 250 Mb/s. Only USG capable of it at gigabit speed is the USG-XG. The cheap option would be to go for pfsense (or untangle / other software)
  8. I've got to say, this series is quite fun to watch. Will be interested to see how customer support goes. haha. Price to performance is pretty brutal on some of these though.

    Autodesk Revit Roof Issue

    Hmm, that's quite bizarre. I've never seen revit do that before. I'm on 2018.3 and it works just fine (I should upgrade to 2019 later...) I would try delete the roof and remaking it? Double check to make sure all of your roof slopes are the same.
  10. Yes, both need to be Gigabit Ethernet. Fast Ethernet is 100 Mb/s. MB/s is different from Mb/s. 100 Mb/s (megabits) / 8 = 12.5 MB/s (Megabytes. There's some overhead, so 10MB/s is pretty realistic for that)
  11. Yeah, a pfsense box would work great. Or if you want to buy something off the shelf for pfsense, netgate makes retail pfsense routers (not exactly cheap though). Hmm, those tp-link APs are pretty interesting / solid value. Never seen them before.
  12. Two main popular ones are Paint Tool Sai and Clip Paint Studio (Which goes on sale 50% off from time to time). There's also Krita which is free.

    I7 6700k vs i7 3770k at 4.8 ghz

    I would take, even if to resale it just because the price is really good. But yeah, 3770K at 4.8 GHz is no joke. I have my 2700K at 4.9 GHz and it's still quite a fighter.
  14. Just wanted to clarify, the Ubiquiti APs only need a controller for the initial setup (You can install it as a program on your PC, phone, etc) then after being programmed they're pretty much automatic. You only need a controller 24/7 if you want logging info (If you already have a homelab with a server that runs 24/7, you can install unifi controller as a software if you'd like. You don't need something like the Ubiquiti cloud key). Oh, you will need the controller to push firmware updates as needed though (At least if you don't want to do it the hardcore way via ssh). As for a router, maybe look into the Ubiquiti Edgerouter 4 or Lite (It doesn't have a switch built in though). I'm not sure how much IPsec throughput you need. I don't think the normal consumer brands would please you in terms of features in my opinion.

    Access point and switch recommendations

    Yeah, two lites would work for it, but it depends on how your home handles wifi. Like my home is not that big (1,200 SQ FT), but Wi-Fi just gets eaten in my house. You can easily add more APs as needed in the future. You might look for used ones or open box ones, I've gotten good deals on them.
