This is the overclocked bundle from OCUK:

Bundle Specification
- CPU: Intel Core 3930K 3.20GHz @ 4.40GHz CPU
- Motherboard: Asus P9X79 PRO Intel X79
- RAM: G.Skill RipJawZ 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 PC3-12800C9 1600MHz Quad Channel
- Cooler: Corsair H80 CPU Cooler

What bundle would you put together and why. 4.4GHz is more than enough for me.

Very good mix of components. I have them, but didn't buy as a bundle, so I'm running 4.2GHz @ 1.25 vcore to keep it quiet. Verry happy with this, might try to reduce the volts some more.

I'd get a H100, and push the processor to 4.6-4.9 depending on if you get a good clocker or not.

You're paying that much money, so why not..

For the cost of an H100, you might as well spend that little extra and custom watercool it.

You should easily see 5GHz without too much fiddling, at least if my 3820 is anything to go by in that board.

5ghz on a 3930K is not as easy as on a 3820. Some wont evan do it and your cooling must be top notch to keep the extra heat produced by the additional cores manageable. For 4.4 ghz though you should be ok with the H100. Your spec looks fine by the way for other components.
