The NH-D14 has no need for PWM. They are so quiet that they just run 100% and keep things cool.

Ohh so PWM is silence oriented.

What do you make of the build update?
I've made a lot of research and made sure it's compatible (dimensions wise as well as hardware wise where the data was available)/

Many have given you many suggestion and that is exactly what they are, suggestions. As you can see by my specs I'm a Noctua fan person. Mind all run quiet at 100% all the time.
Their is nothing wrong with your choices they are just not the ones I would of made. I'm glad you went through the research to make your choices. That is part of the fun in building a computer.

Maybe along the line I missed somethings. A SSD would be very nice somewhere in the 120 gig range. Of course looking through which Windows 7/64 will be best for your needs. A hard drive for storage. You might of already taken care of these things I don't remember and don't want to read throught all those post again.

RAM - I will be getting 2 more 4GB modules when I have the money.
CPU - High end, plenty of room for overclocking when I can get watercooling.
GPU - I'll be getting 2 more monitors and another 7970. AMD works better than GTX with multiple monitors.
Mobo - Cheap, 2011 socket is better for future use. Plenty of USB 3.0 and Sata 6GB ports.
Case - Looks awesome + good cable management.
PSU - Modular, plenty of room for expansion.
SSD - A must-have in any decent machine.

(Look at my Specs) The Noctua NH-D14 is big and bulky like most quality air coolers. The NH-D14 is a great air cooler. It might inter fear with things on the motherboard such as ram ect. You wouldn't know unless you try or find a video where someone has already done a installation with similar hardware that you will be using.
The fan controller on the T600 is useless. Many have installed a H100 in the 660T but it's very tight. You will not be able to have push/pull fans on the 600T with the H100. Not enough room. You could use push/pull with a H80.

Another good choice in my opinion for about $50.00 more.

Too much to choose from

with my GTX460, what it comes down to is that the 680 is expensive.
What I'm really wondering is, why did you go with the 1000W power supply? You could be spending a whole lot less by keeping the GS600. I see no reason to replace it.
What it really comes down to is I have it for almost two years now and I know the efficiency degrades over time, with that in mind I don't want to harm a component unintentionally which will then may cost even more.

Is my logic correct on this one?
If that's the reason, then the GS600 is still more than good enough. The degradation really only applies to lower quality PSUs because they use lower quality components (like cheap capacitors). What happens is the capacity slowly degrades over the course of a few years if there's heavy use the whole time. Fortunately for you, you have the GS600, and the GS600 is good enough that you absolutely do not have to worry about it - not for several years. So, relax and save yourself some money!

Besides, a quality-made 1000W power supply is only appropriate for a system that has like 3-4 video cards.

TwoCables you are correct that is a lot of power supply. Myself I make recommendation and if the OP wants different, well so be it. Their are things that YoYo155 has chosen that I would of chose different but that's his choice. I wish him well on his new build.

It just pains me to see someone spend that much money when there's no need for it. I mean, that's a $230 power supply here in the US! $230! I could see spending that much if he was planning on having about 3 or 4 video cards and if he was going to be doing very heavy overclocking, but he's not. Plus, he already has the GS600 which is enough even for two video cards (I can prove it) and it's more than good enough to last at least 5 years, likely more.

If there's a fear of future upgrades, then all I can say about that is each new generation of GPUs and CPUs requires less power than the previous.

I have no idea why you let it bother you. Nobody is saying that a GS600 isn't a good power supply. My AX850 won't ever turn it's fan on unless I work the system hard. It never gets hot enough. My system doesn't need that power supply to work proper but I want it.

I just don't want to see someone I'm helping spend $230 when there's absolutely no need for it. That $230 could be spent on something else that's actually needed.

Yes, it's his choice, but I think it's important to make a choice based on knowledge instead of guesswork - especially when it could cost you a large amount of money like this. I mean, why spend money when there's absolutely no need for it?
