Question Arg!!! Where's an ESA-certified PSU!!??

Right I'm on the verge of making an UUUUber PC and I want it ESA enabled.
For anyone that doesn't know what ESA means:
How It Works
It is basically a way to communicate to the power supply unit, graphics card, motherboard, chassis and water cooling. It makes overclocking and downclocking so easy and it's a great innovation. I suggest you check it out. Anyways, I have an ESA-enabled motherboard, Chassis (through the Silverstone Commander Series) and graphics cards. I just need to find where I could get a ESA-enabled PSU. There hard to find, even in the states though I found the Cooler Master 1000W ESA for $330 though it cost $180 to import to the UK. Is there any place I could buy this sort of PSU.
Remember it MUST be ESA-certified because of the chip on the daughter board it has in it.
Thanks and I'd be happy to answer questions if needs be.

It is still relatively new technology and may take a significant amount of time to start showing up on store shelves near you.
