Please try to use "--with-gpu-arch=sm_35", compute capability 3.5 is supported for K80. I do not recall I added explicit support for 3.7 in QE-GPU. From an optimization perspective, I can guarantee there is nothing in the code that leverage K80 better than any other NVIDIA GPU Kepler architecture.
Best suggestion is to move to QE 5.3.0 and get the QE-GPU bundled with it. Updates will arrive with the next release as well since now the two are aligned. tar.gz and announcement will made during the weekend.
