If you can afford 44 cores of processors then you can definitely afford something better than a GTX TEN SEVENTY. Get a Quadro M5000 for around 1K or hell, even put 2 in SLI. Your power supply is WAY to beefy. Go with a 1000W max. You have a wired adapter in your list. I'm not sure if that's intentional or not. Xeons don't need water cooling since you're not overclocking them, at least that's my opinion.

This is a build I may be planning to do sometime, it's relevant though not completely the same. Check this out if you need any ideas. Notice how I'm putting my Storage Drives in RAID 1. That's not necessary but it's just something I plan to do. You don't need 3 FirePro W8100s either.

Thanks for your advices. I'm not sure I will use a lot graphic cards but we never know for sure. I'm looking at Xeon phi cards but it doesn't seem to be easily used by applications. I also look at quadro Xeon to see what i can get with my money but it's quite expensive.
