Default Best value 4x4GB memory modules?

With RAM this cheap, I figure it's best that I'll get 16GB of RAM. I intend to pair this with an Intel i5 2500K and a Z68 mATX board (haven't decided on which one). Which 4x4GB memory modules will overclock decently on a Z68 mATX board?

Do they overclock decently even in a 4x4GB configuration?

Even with the $5.99 shipping? I wonder if Ncix and or ME will PM with Newegg. I notice that it's a shell shocker right now, but will the deal expire tonight?
