Default psu

i sold my hiper 580w psu, that i bought mainly because of the special look of the plugs.
EXTREME Overclocking - Hiper Type-R 580W Modular Power Supply Review - Page: 1 - Tweaking PC Hardware To The Max

i want to buy another, but i cant find it anywhere except ncixus, which took 4 weeks to ship the first, and are now out of stock. Any comparable psu with cables that look like this or the same one somewhere reputable in stock?

how about something like this
Newegg.com - XION Supernova XON-800R14N ATX12V / EPS12V 800W Power Supply 115/ 230 V CUL, FCC, TUV, CE, C-tick, CB, BSMI - Power Supplies or Newegg.com - ABS Tagan BZ Series BZ700 ATX12V / EPS12V 700W Patent Piperock Modular Power Supply 100 - 240 V TUV, UL, CE, CB, FCC, Semko, Nemko, Demko, Fimko - Power Supplies

Yup, Xion are crap, the ABS Tagan is far better, Oh and just for the record ABS Tagan and Tagan are not the same brand..
