Default Scythe puts out new line of PSUs: "ChouRiki"

400W / 500W / 600W / 700W models:
株式会社サイズ | 商品詳細 |超力 400〜700Wモデル (Translate)

850W / 1000W models:
株式会社サイズ | 商品詳細 |超力 850/1000Wモデル (Translate)

According to a rep on their forums, the 850W and 1000W models are a little longer than the others. They use 120mm Scythe Kama FLEX S-FDB mounted on the bottom, and the entire line is being manufactured by Enhance.
450~830rpm / 7.9~14.2dBA(400W)
450~870rpm / 7.9~14.8dBA(500W)
450~1100rpm / 7.9~18.6dBA(600W)
580~1420rpm / 10.0~24.2dBA(700W)
490~1460rpm / 8.5~24.7dBA(850W)
560~1460rpm / 9.6~24.7dBA(1000W)

700W looks like the sweet spot for me. Edit: Cooling Technique has pictures of each of the PSUs' labels.
