SLI, four Raptors in RAID 0, FX-55 O/C to 2.8Ghz, 14 fans in a case, Things
like that.

While I'm all for numerous case fans, 14 sounds a bit overkill.

Personal choice, noise vs. cooling vs. overclocking.

They are all quiet fans if that helps.

I'm not saying you shouldn't, it's all up to you. I've got 4 80MM fans
myself. :)  I'd think you'd be good with maybe 3 90mm fans, 1 in front of
the drives, one in the back of the case, and one blow hole in the top of the
case. The blow hole is the best for removing heat, and I've seen a 5º+ drop
in case temp with it. You could also use 2 120MM fans, one in front of the
drives, and one in the back, and maybe a smaller fan for a blow hole. It's
really all up to personal choice.

Then what the hell you want 600W for? Your system will rarely draw
more than 350W, each Raptor never more than 1.5A from the 12V line.
This isn't to say the majority of supplies labelled "350W" will be able
to power it.
14 fans to cool a small computer as much sense as....nothing.

My Aopen H700A support seven 80mm fans, using all Vantec Stealth with a
Digital Doc 5+, PSU fans on the Antec 550W, CPU fan, Northbridge, DPS card,
Graphics card and so on.

System is not that noisy compared to just ONE Vantec Tornado...now that is
loud.

14 fans and a size obsession go together.

You don't know what the future will be like in 1-2 years, and when
people previously have tried to future-proof their machines they simply
paid extra and later found it was cheaper to scrap their equipment
rather than upgrade it, a case in point being 486 motherboards with
Pentium upgrade sockets -- almost nobody could buy the upgrade Pentiums
for those sockets. Also with power supplies the industry could be a
switch to BTX style, and I suspect that desktop computers have almost
topped out in power consumption and will consume less in 1-2 years,
partially thanks to better chip processes that don't leak nearly as
much electricity.

The best 600W supply you can buy may be the 510W model from PC Power &
Cooling since they rate their supplies at 40C rather than the usual
25C, and at 25C it can put out 600W.

Some people paint funny logos on their cars.

Some people have furry animals hanging from their rear-view mirror.

Others like to have 14 fans in their case.

So what?

Remember when 128meg of RAM was extreme? No one needed more than a 40G

Doesn't always follow. Shuttle XPCs only have 200W or 250W PSUs.

No I'm a electronic technician engineer since 35 years ago.
I know in detail how this works.
You need margins every fraction of seconds.
Never use more than 70% of the PSU:s capacity from every single oputput.
Don't forget the peak current.

Don't forget how efficient a PSU is either...

Shuttle XPCs manage to get away with lower rated PSUs because they are
far more efficient than normal ATX ones. Also a good quiality ATX one
will have higher output current on the 12v,5V,3.3V lines than a budget
one for the same reason.

Untrue. There's no reason a 200W, 90% efficient supply can feed any
more power to its load than a 200W, 65% efficient supply can. But the
higher the quality of the supply, regardless of its efficiency, the
more likely it can meet or exceed its ratings, and if all supplies met
their ratings, rarely would anything larger than 350W be needed.

Around 68% for a normal ATX PSU.

It's very important to check all output lines capacity,
not only the total capacity in watts.
When starting drives it takes more than double amps.
All other electronics also takes a lot more when starting.
You get longer lifespan with a PSU that you don't use hard
near to the limit.

It's not. A 600W power supply will waste hardly more energy, if any,
than a smaller supply with the same load, but a Hummer will use 2-3x
the energy of a regular car and cause people to assume the driver has a
fat gut and needs Viagra.

what is this a contest of who can 'claim' the bigger member....?
utter overkill on every scale
and not a mention of what a system like that would be used for. SLI......OMG
1990's tech., there wasn't a 600w PSU around then.

I agree, if people want to get a 600 W power supply, they should
go for it. After all, they can't use more power than they use --
meaning, regardless of the rating of the PS, the computer is going
to draw the same amount of power. Having too big a power supply is
like having a V-10 engine and driving around the city at 30 MPH.
I'm wondering when the power supply of a computer will start to
overload a house circuit (when maxed that is). The average circuit
is fused for 1500 W. Seems sort of funny to me if we get to the
point when you can't plug in your toaster and computer at the same
time, or you'll blow a fuse.

So you're quite happy with the computer industry ripping off people by

People want to be ripped off. As long as they think they are
getting something bigger, noisier, badder and more powerful than
the next guy, they are happy. I bet there's a demand for 700 W
power supplies, by those who want bragging rights over those who
own 600 W PS.

Why would a person be judged on wanting to get somthing? Why does he want a
600W PSU. It does not matter. So what if he wants it. Thats his business.
Who has the right to judge him or anyone for having a Hummer or a 600w PSU?

Thank you, i'm just thinking of the future...to get a PCI-E compliant PSU
with high wattage to TRY and future proof. As much as you can in this PC
game.

600W is a nice number. I have not heard of anything going to a different ATX
style or what ever. So I think you will be ok for a while.

But of course, why think when you can just go on autopilot.

My Antec is fine, but i want a PSU that is BTX and PCI-E ready + extra juicy
to future proof.

Perhaps you should think about that.

No silly, it would just smell and have breadcrumbs on the bottom of my case.

Depends on how one defines "dumbass", personally i think you're more
interested then say others are, but to answer...i'll be whatever you want me
to be, on the internet.
