My System Specs


Stick a 3770K on that P67Pro and be done with it.

I was going to put one of my 4770K chips in my main PC and then said "nah" and went back to my trusty de-lidded 3770K that runs 4.8Ghz with a 1.25 volts vCore at 67-70 celsius.

Autocad and Revit aren't 3D rendering where you could theoretically see some time shaved off from the extra AVX and FPU enhancements, so 4770K will be a wash for you.

I wouldn't waste my money on Haswell even though I already did I was at least expecting some better power usage or better performance per watt and I didn't even get that. Big disappointment.

My next best choice would be an i7 3820 on a good Asus or Gigabyte board due to the enhanced memory performance. I like the LGA2011 platform because there is no gimping of features. You get overclocking plus full virtualization enhancements unlike Sandy and Ivy Bridge.

Only the 3770 (non-K) has a bit of both where you get some overclocking up to 4.3 - 4.5ghz from multi-core enhancement, BCLK raise, and XMP settings as well as the full virtualization features like VT-X and VT-d.

Xeven: How about 10^8.450980400142567e-001 -as a possible replacement for "10e"
