110/120VAC vs. 230/240VAC doesn't matter on PSUs with active PFC, which yours has. You do need an American plug however. Also your PSU has an unusual plug on its end, built for higher current. So you need a special cable.

That should work for you.

BeQuiet is owned by Listan GmbH, and they're a German company, so they're big in Germany and Europe in general. Would they be successful if they came to the US? Who knows; the US market is not like the EU market.

Listan does sell good products, although they have more than their share of duds and flawed products as well. I wouldn't say they've got anything that really outshines anything in the States though. You've got a good unit, but there's as good and better available here.

are you sure we are talking about the same unit, becasue i dont have the wierd plug like you are talking about, here some pictures of the unit maybe help you get a better idea and maybe help me understand a little better, casue even on the plug it says 200v.

It doesn't have full range APFC, you need to feed it 230v, I can't think of a cheap solution for your problem.
