Then again I suppose you could have a "tedium" of bores.

For the three unlisted letters what about

a forest of umbrellas

a pencil of X-rays (when they all meet at a point).

For ICs what about a "Spock" of logic chips?

@kfield: A murder of crows.

In addition to "a murder," you can also have "a horde of crows," "a parcel of crows," or -- my favorite -- "a storytelling of crows"
