Like I said, a 1200w unit is going to be your best bet. The Sparkle Magna Pro linked below is actually a really good option.

, couldn't find anything on it - any knowledge of this PSU ?
Very basic Solytech build.
Not a system killer but won't do full power @ 40*C. Build is very similar to this Rosewill unit, but even more barebones.

Looks the same as Aurum Pro from the back side, wattage specs are the same, and I don't think FSP has another platform that goes that high?
Yes, it's Aurum Pro.
SPI is FSPs retail arm, and the Magna line is their own "special" (ala not grey box) line of PSUs. Solid unit.
FSP does have a few different 1200w designs in their library.
They made a custom one for BeQuiet that was 80+ Silver and pretty awful, it just didn't do anything right.
They had the old Everest Pro 1250w as well, it failed to impress.
The custom design for NZXT's Hale90v2 is solid though.
