I would strongly recommend getting the 3930K, it's a 50pct savings for a maximum of a 2pct performance decrease. The money is far better spent on cooling system, memory, storage, or anything else that will actually make a difference. It's enough money to add a third GPU!

Regarding the RAM, I highly recommend the G.Skill Ripjaws Z DDR3 2133 kit, either the 4x4GB, 4x8GB, or 8x4GB. The memory is incredibly flexible, easily overclocks with great timings or under clocks with super tight timings (2400 @ 10-11-11-30, 1866 @ 8-9-8, or 1600 @ 7-7-7 all possible). It's rated for 2133 9-11-10-28 and 2133@CL9 is super fast. It's also one of the least expensive high end memory kits.

Just remember that filling all 8 slots will reduce memory/CPU overclocking ability, and the larger the individual DIMMs the less likely to hit super high speeds. Personally, I would go with 4x8GB 2133cl9, and if you need more you can always add it later, but in the meantime you are puttingless stress on the IMC.

Most professionals like yourself use that motherboard and CPU combo with G.Skill RipJaws Z or Trident X series memory. By enabling the XMP Profile in BIOS/EFI, you can use any of their kits including DDR3-2400. With a slight overclock to CPU frequency, you will notice a significant improvement to overall processing times. Something that generally takes 25 minutes can be reduced to 15 minutes or less depending on how much you overclock. The increased bus bandwidth/throughput is extremely beneficial for CAD and memory intensive software.

I agree, with adequate cooling you should be able to get to 4.4-4.6Ghz without any issues while keeping the voltage at a nice low level, and the differencein speed is ssignificant. Any higher and gains drop off sharply, but with a 3930K @ 4.6Ghz and DDR3 2133 9-11-10-28 you should be flying!
