Has anyone tested or know if a Nvidia Tesla K80 24GB or Nvidia Grid K1 16GB server video card would work for mining?

No they are Kepler cards which is unsupported. Anything older than Pascal isn't worth it. Technically Maxwell cards will work, but the hash rate is crippled by the memory bus making it not worth it.

I have a Tesla K10 and use it for Boinc projects like einstein@home when I need a space heater and they will also work with folding@home.

While researching the question above ^
I stumbled on this little gem which although three years ago now, seems ironically similar to todays laments.

I'm still researching these cards. While they are not as effective as the modern day gpu's, as long as they are not totally handicapped by hash rates/wattage concerns I would still consider the option. The largest obstacle I see is finding suitable gpu's at a reasonable price. I'm not falling for the currently inflated pricing...perhaps in another year there will be a change.
