<Whatever boots you want> -- completely situational

Madred's Bloodrazors -- with lvl 5 BaB would add 10% of the enemy's max health in damage.

Last Whisper -- with lvl 5 CS popped would give 90% armor reduction on an enemy (right?)

Frozen Mallet -- Auto-attack slow, and extra HP makes Kog'Maw less squishy.

Rylai's Crystal Scepter -- Spell-damage slow, and extra HP. Can't go wrong with adding about .8% max health dmg to BaB and some extra damage to his other spells that scale with AP.

Youmuu's Ghostblade -- More armor penetration, damage, IAS, crit chance %. Goes great with BaB and Madred's

Runes: Armor penetration (quint & marks), IAS (cooldown), health (seal)
Masteries: 23/0/7

Stats @ lvl 18:
-- HP: 3,326
-- Attack Speed: 1.512 (w/o Youmuu's active)
-- Damage: 198 (BaB and Madreds not included obviously)
-- AP: 80
-- Armor Pen.: 55.37 (lulz)
-- Armor Pen. %: 40% (if you pop CS, it's 90%)
-- Magic Pen. %: 15%
-- CDR: 26%

Can IAS/AD Kog'Maw work? Give it a try and let me know how it is. Haven't touched the champion ever, and I just thought of this in about 2 minutes. So flame on or tell me that you tried it and went 21-2-9, whatever lol.

Well, I haven't tried it, purely for that fact that it would never happen. This item build costs a ridiculous amount of gold to finish it off, and the order is pretty awkward. No mana regen is bad on Kog, and AD does very little to help his overall DPS(due to his W).

While I disagree with a couple of your final items/the order I've basically used this build.

I thought the same way Ness did but I figured I'd give it a shot. Auto-attack Kog'maw is actually pretty crazy. Sure your basic damage value is low but between Q's passive 25% or active 50% and Last Whispers 40% (and presuming you have armor pen runes/masteries) you're looking at basically True Damage auto-attacks for 4 seconds.

That's crazy.

I wish people would look at thread dates before making their incredibly enlightening posts.

So many necro threads...
