Yes, he can get by with 750W easy. I run a 1000W with 3 GPUs all OC with a decent OC on my CPU as well.

No, there is no overvolting. All ATX put out the same voltage on the same pins. The only difference from PSU to PSU is current capacity and efficiency (well build quality too).

Your machine well not draw more current than it needs so using 1200W on a machine that pulls 200W will not cause damage, just a waste of money.

Having more wattage available than you need (head room) will allow the PSU to run cooler and therefore usually quieter.

I typically buy a PSU that has head room so it does run cool and silent and gives me the option where I can expand my system with no worry of buying another PSU.

Just dont buy too much wattage that will dop the efficiency

I know what is manufacturer specification for define r4 but I also know that in this case some
E-ATX will fit like this Asus Maximus V Formula ( 30.5 cm x 25.7 cm )


But like I said before there are some bigger E-ATX formats, and I just don't know what is precise asrock size.

Well, the Rampage IV Extreme E-ATX with 305 x 272 mm also fit in the R4, see my rig. thumb.gif

really a non issue for E-ATX only questionable issues could be 24-pin location of the ASRock boards opposed to the ASUS locations.
whether the ODD cage could be an issue, the rubber pass-through grommets will be pretty much unusable, here are pix of an
ASUS Maximus IV Extreme-Z
