VCF 4.2 Physical NICs

Hey,
What is the best practice to be used if I do have 2*1Gb & and 4*10Gb uplinks with VCF 4.2?
I decided to use Profile-3, but I need to know if any other option available to use the 6 uplinks!

BR,

types of profile nics we have in vCF. 

Profile 1 supports one vSphere Distributed Switch with two to four physical NICs.

Profile 2 supports two vSphere Distributed Switches, each with two physical NICs. Traffic for host
overlay, edge overlay, and uplinks are assigned to the second vSphere Distributed Switch.

Profile 3 supports two vSphere Distributed Switches, each with two physical NICs. Traffic for vSAN is
assigned to the second vSphere Distributed Switch.

only these can be used as par of VCF . SInce u are using profile NIC 3 , 4*10gb nics , 

Configuration of additional hosts using more than two physical NICs for expansion of the
management domain or the creation of new workload domains requires the use of the Cloud
Foundation APIs

VCF supports only 10gib and 25gib nics only. 

Thanks & Regards,
