I put together my own hack. I used the "older" socket 1366. On a popular windows board. The gigabyte x58a-ud3r. Fun machine. Stable and a lot more power than my MacBook pro. Found a dual CPU ivy bridge board today. Put together the core parts (in a shopping cart, didn't buy) and had a 12-core for less than a "new" Mac Pro. May build something similar next year when prices drop even more.

Asus z9pe-d8 was the board. Just in case someone is feeling adventurous.
