Welcome to the forums! I would personally say you will want to look into more storage. I tend to find myself running out of space quicker than I thought with project files and games.

Well I have tried Heaven benchmark! I don't remember the score but in extreme settings in 1080p got well over 150fps if I'm remembering it right!!

What mobo? I just finished a build kinda similar to yours. I'm running an Asus Prime Z370-a and in the bios there are some quick tuning options for over clocking. it asks you some questions about your use case and cooling and gives a suggested safe overclock. I think it was about 20% with a gaming use case and liquid cooling for me. 

 

How about your boot drive? Using an m.2 drive was the best thing I can think of as far as program load times. I'm using an 970evo m.2 500gb drive as my boot drive and then a MX500 1tb as my game drive.

For Cad you will need a lot more ram and a Quadro card for better previews(64 x AA in Opengl). 

 

For gaming and 3D(3D Max) I could get away with 16gbs ram.  For Autocad I needed 32gbs and still had to ask for layers I did not need to be removed so I could open the file.

 

Quadro cards are easier on the eyes. For 3D rendering I could get away with using GTX cards since my previews were solid. With cad I needed the Quadros to prevent eye strain. 

 

You should also think about getting a second monitor for your cad work. A 1440 or 4k 60hz TN panel would do since you don't need color accuracy for cad.
