That's a great build and everything is compatible.   Running on stock settings, no heat issues.  I hope you don't mind a few suggestions and some observations, not criticism.

The MB is excellent, great spacing for duel GPU.   It has 4 pin PWR fan headers and Command Centre temp/fan control, so: worth checking the specs for the DIYPC case.   the fans may only have  12v plugs and a fan controllers means only set fixed speeds, no variable speeds settings depending on temps.

 

SLI.   More demanding games with maxed setting may cause the CPU to become a choke point.   Lower the setting or overclock the CPU.

 

RAM for gaming, 8GB is enough and 2666MHz is the sweet spot.

Two SSDs, Better configuration would be one SSD, OS/games and 1TB HDD programs like Office + mass storage and images/backups.

 

Your GPU performance will be very high and your 3 year old tech monitor will likely suffer tearing and not do the output justice.   consider using a 144Hz G-Sync one.   If your cards are outputting 85 fps, that's what the moitor will show.

 

A modified build for your consideration, > http://pcpartpicker.com/list/CLWrM8

 

If my build, I would go one GTX 1080 and upgrade to a i7 CPU.
