Have you tried NDR? I found they have a lot of LED systems in stock.

I've been running my DIY led light for over 7 years now and although I'm currently having a few issues, my lights have been excellent. About 75% of them came from Rapid and the rest came from Reefleds. Both were very good to deal with but I get the sense that Rapid is more involved in the aquarium industry these days. Remember when you build your lights you need to keep in mind the forward voltage on each string. I ended up trying to mix bins up when I first was making the lights but found large differences by bin in the forward voltage and ended up not mixing things.
