Square Perfect 600A

Cost about $130/piece.  3 second refresh on full power.  Actual power probably closer to 350ws.  Bowens compatible speedrings.

They only have 100 watt modeling lights.  I've seen these rebranded too.  They have cooling fans and so far, have been reliable (though admittedly I haven't used them nearly as much as my easier to haul out speedlights.)  I recall reading of someone swapping out the model lights for ones with more power.
