$1500-$2000 USD scientific workstation

Build Help/Ready:

Have you read the sidebar and rules? (Please do)
Yes.
What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.
Primary: Scientific Workstation
Software includes -
-> computationally expensive MATLAB
- CUDA-enabled GPU computing for MATLAB
-> computationally expensive quantum chemistry/DFT software
- Examples of software - I want to be able to do GPU-assisted simulations as well
- VASP - has GPU support
-> computationally expensive FDTD software
- Lumerical FDTD Solver - commercial software (I have a license) that apparently does not support GPU support; seems the main bottleneck is memory bandwidth and not processing power
gsvit - open source FDTD with GPU support
Secondary: Gaming, Cryptocurrency (Etherium, Bitcoin mining)
I figure the workstation specifications will more than cover the computer's ability to do these, but I wanted to mention these all for completeness sake.
If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, framerate, game settings)
1080p 60fps on high/ultra is good, but if the performance is possible wouldn't mind getting into 4k down the road. I mainly play Blizzard games and Minecraft right now, but may get into Destiny 2.
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?
$1500-$2000, but variable.

Provide any additional details you wish below.
As I mentioned, the primary purpose of this computer will be as a scientific workstation. I don't intend for it to be servecluster quality, but rather a strong desktop computer (duel Windows/Linux boot) that can run some relatively small, computationally expensive simulations and software in a reasonable amount of time, before larger projects/assignments are created for running on a computing cluster.
My main concerns are reducing bottleneck - I want to be able to run both CPU and GPU-intensive software in a balanced way, meaning I'm not skimping on the GPU for a better CPU and vice versa. I realize it could be difficult to compare
Some specific questions I have:
1) According to Intel's site, the max RAM speed supported by the i7-7700k is DDR4-2400. How does one use RAM with a higher speed? Do you need a Xeon processor? Also, I'm looking at 32 GB RAM.
2) For my purpose, should I definitely get a Z270? I read somewhere that it has a better memory controller than the Z170, but not sure about this.
3) How does the 1080 compare to 2x 1070? Or a 1080 Ti? For CUDA and for cryptocurrencies? I don't know too much about these from a computer hardware perspective, but am interested in learning more.
Thank you!

I have a MasterLiquid Maker 92 AIO cooler (which, I've checked, is correctly installed) which I thought would be a nice upgrade over the stock cooler. Unfortunately, for some reason the temps are worse than the stock cooler, which would stay at ~50C on idle. I have also confirmed that there's no malware, bitcoin mining, etc going on in task manager.

I am in love with my build so far. With that being said I would really appreciate it if some of the veteran/experienced builders on this sub would comment on my build to see if everything is okay.
Here are some side things to note. The only part that is most likely going to be different is my case. I REALLY want this case http://amzn.com/B00I44ES4I (NZXT H440) but for some reason on pcpartpicker it isn't listed as a compatible case for some reason. It looks fine to me but can anyone explain why? My guess is because on pcpartpicker it says the Ext. 5.25" has the value of zero but I am not so sure what that means. If I really can't get this case then I am fine with settling with the one I already have listed.
On another note. I will be purchasing ALL of my parts with Bitcoin off of http://purse.io. Purse is essentially a platform where I can buy anything off of Amazon with Bitcoin at a discount.I will be able to discount each item from around 10-30% so this build will be a lot cheaper than normal. I would list the pcpartpicker table with only Amazon prices but most of these items don't have Amazon prices through pcpartpicker.

I'm having trouble choosing between 2 motherboards. I like the extra SATA slots for future expansion, because my understand is using M.2 can disable some SATA slots (can someone help me figure out if I use one M.2 in PCIE mode if I will get any sata disabled on either of these mobos?). I also like the idea of the 5 gbps LAN.

I'm helping my buddy out with his first build in 10 years. My Gaming Rig is about 5 years old now and still manages 45fps/1080p on ultra for most games, so I know this rig is going to be great for 1080p. My main concern is with the graphics card. I assume everything is so expensive because of bitcoin mining. I was initially trying to get an RX580 for this, but I can't find one near the $200 price point Logical Increments has for it. Even this GTX is a bit pricey. Hoping that the prices will come down in the near future, but it doesn't seem likely. Please let us know if there are any issues with this build or if there are any better options in this price range. Thanks!

I told my friend about this and he suggested I come here, I've always kind of lurked on Reddit a bit but never made an account until now. Thanks for your input, guys! I'm super excited to get this finalized. I'd really like to stay with the Enthoo Luxe and I'm pretty sure these are the best parts I can get for the money, but let me know. Thanks a lot! Hopefully relevant username.

[Build Ready] Started getting the parts, did I make any mistakes? Also thinking of PSU.

Build Help/Ready:

Have you read the sidebar and rules? (Please do)
Yes.
What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better.
I want a PC to start trading forex, web development, graphic design, play games. Pretty much an important part of my business and personal life. I have just set up a 4 monitor station however this 2009 PC is running very slow and hot. Really want to be able to continue that and have a fast, strong computer. Lots of multitasking!
If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, FPS, game settings)
Mainly play League of Legends or starcraft 2 or anything from steam library. Resolution I am currently running 3 monitors at 1920x1080 and 1 at 720p. Want to run games at 60fps at High/Ultra quality.
What is your budget (ballpark is okay)?
I want to spend around $1,000. Probably reuse some old parts. I bought most of the parts below.
In what country are you purchasing your parts?
Canada

Back Story- I saw goodatit 's post on /battlestations early last year and decided to make my own rendition. A different configuration and thicker plastic etc. The issue I am having is I do not know if I should use powered or nonpowered PCIE Risers for the 2 GPU's and audio card. Any thoughts? The distance between the Mobo and the GPUS is about 10 inches, 7 inches straight-line. I've spent enough money on this to by both, but frying one of the GPU's/Mobo would be crappy.
If I had to put several risers in a row, could i have one powered and the rest unpowered?
nonpowered: http://www.digikey.com/catalog/en/partgroup/pci-express/30025
Powered: http://www.amazon.com/PCIE-Powered-Flexible-Extender-Bitcoin/dp/B00GUKRX6S/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1429984770&sr=1-1&keywords=powered+pcie+riser
Thanks in advance
Edit 1- What is the purpose of a powered PCIE riser?

Describe your problem. List any error messages and symptoms. Be descriptive.
I've been using this rig to game for a while, and everything seemed fine. It can handle what I throw at it, and didn't ask too many questions about the performance. But now that I've got an HTC Vive and Oculus Rift (kickstarter backer), it is apparent that there is a big performance gap between when my computer first starts up, and after a couple of hours. And when I say big, I mean HUGE.
I first thought it was due to an incompatible USB3 chipset, that the tracking itself was jittering, but then I did some 3Dmark 11 tests separately from the VR headsets, and it's clear that right after restarting my PC, it's fast, and after a while it becomes slower. It might have something to do with sleep mode, but I think it happens after a while anyway. Sometimes, in a Vive gaming session, it starts out fast for about 10 minutes and then becomes slow. It's hard to put a time on it.
Look at this! Score after restart: 15764 http://i.imgur.com/ZtEQHyj.png
Score after a while: 7433 http://i.imgur.com/sRYR8fJ.png
That's less than half the score...
List anything you've done in attempt to diagnose or fix the problem.
I close down F.lux before I do these tests, I've also removed old NVIDIA drivers with DDU and reinstalled the latest one. I shut down as many programs that might be running in the background.
CPU temps are normal, when I'm rendering 3D graphics for example they are at 100% load and temps are at maximum 45°C. There's a huge cooler on there, because I was planning on overclocking the CPU but haven't done it yet.
GPU-wise, I'm not sure what to check. Temps are at 59°C right now as I'm typing this and GPU load at 87% (I've got a lot of tabs open in Chrome at the moment).
EDIT:: So my GPU load seems to be stuck at 87% when idling... so I'm going to run a malwarebytes scan, maybe I'm mining bitcoin via a virus or something?
In the HTC Vive Performance analyzer, I can see constant dropped frames when the performance is low.
I've installed CPU-Z and Process explorer, and the culprit seems to be a process called Steam - when I kill it, my GPU load goes back to normal. It's a supposed bitcoin miner, removal instructions here: https://steamcommunity.com/discussions/forum/1/35221584425122691/
Jesus Christ if this is true I don't want to know how much electricity I've been wasting

Bitcoin is a cool currency. One thing that's notable about it is that it's comparable to a "gold standard" type of currency in that there is a finite amount of it and the value of it comes purely from a 1-1 correspondence with a physical thing (proof that you have solved a certain form of computational problem in this case). Newegg , one of the largest online electronics retailers, made the announcement today that it will begin accepting bitcoin. To many of the companys customers, the announcement was a long time coming. After Overstock began accepting bitcoin in January, Newegg shoppers took to social media, wondering when the company wo As soon as the Problem is solved, the lets say 1 Bitcoin you sent from A to B is now at B and recorded in the public ledger.
