Someone was told me that it stops a powerfist from doubling the models strenght. Is this true?
Quick answer the powere fist will strike at the str of the user no bonus agains a monolith under living metal rule
Unfortunatly we really can't give you a clear answer as this has been debated to death with each side not giving in. IMO the powerfist shouldn't get the double str but from what I have heard judges have been in the favour of the powerfists so who knows. Either way way would you want PF attacking a monolith it only hits on 6+ as it is a skimmer plus you need another 6+ to even glance it(for SM anyways).
Is it me or does any other necron player get annoyed when they see people saying "Necrons eat souls". How is that even possible as souls are part of the warp and necrons want nothing to do with it? Eh probaly me just me being picky.

The problem lies in the fact that the 1st and 2nd printings of the Necron rulebook differ in what they say under the Living Metal rule. Since not everyone has the 2nd printing this is where the problem is. Since I only have the 1st printing, I think that the powerfist counts...but I dont own the second printing so I dont know what it says. GGs GW!
The second print states that any weapon attacking the monolith rolls for AP using its unaugmented strenght score and only one D6 NO MATTER WHAT. Only ordnance weapons get 2D6 for AP and choose the higher of the two.
Since we cannot give a definitive answer you will want to agree with your opponent before the game whether powerfists do / do not work.
This has been heavily debated many, many times before. Use the forum search and you can find various discussions about it. To summarize: neither side of the argument agrees with the other. My suggestion is to flip a coin.
EDIT: Here's a bunch of threads on the subject:

Why do the survivors remain anonymous -- as if cursed -- while the dead are revered? Why do we cling to what we lose while we ignore what we still hold?
Name none of the fallen, for they stood in our place, and stand there still in each moment of our lives.
