Upgrading for college classes makes no sense whatsoever, not when you already have a delidded 3770k

I have a 3930K and I love it, but I have to agree with the majority here and say if you're already running a 3770K and close to 5 GHz, then stick with your current platform and save the money for beer or gas.

3930K will destroy the 3770K if you can utilize all six cores. Folding is 50% faster due to cores alone, but you'll be hard pressed to push more than 4 cores with CAD/CAM and college engineering simulations.

Save your money bro, buy a Ivy Bridge-E when they come out if you want a hex+ core.

Seems like a pointless upgrade to me. You have a nice setup enjoy what you have. Save your money. The biggest thing I can think of doing is maybe swap out that ASRock Extreme4 for an Extreme6 or a Z77X-UD3H and see if you can go beyond 5GHz. CPU you wise, and the rest of your components, you are pretty good with.

If you want to increase your bench scores, overclock your ram. Besides, if you can get your 3770k to do 5.0GHz with HT on for benching. I really don't see what the problem is. You can always try playing with the BCLK & Multi to see if you can stretch it. I know that allowed me to push my benching clocks a little higher.

I've had no problems with running 3ds Max, Visual Studio or Unity3D on my 3770K. I would at least hold off a bit and wait for Intel's new stuff to see if they offer anything cool. :3
