Depending on how comfortable you are with dirtying your hands with strange hardware, and in tone with what Curtis said, try googling your favorite rubbish-selling site (like ebay, amazon, aliexpress, etc) for "lga2011 set". With a bit of luck, some average risk, and lots of work (work includes searching) you can get an 80-to-240-cores machine for as much as 2000-to-4000-bucks (which includes 5-to-10-sets, the power supplies you will have to add separate, local buy, a net switch, a monitor, etc.).

We posted about that in Mike's yolo thread some time ago.

Edit: if you buy from Amazon, maybe you also consider this.
