DC Return Pump for 65 SPS

Since I am upgrading my flow pumps to Vortechs, am also looking at upgrading my return pump. I am currently using a lifeguard but want a better pump. What would be a good DC pump that has the ability to change flow volume via speed control and can handle a standard 65 with built in overflow? I have looked at the Reef Octopus Varios pumps but haven't found many reviews of them.

There's two model series for the Varios, the "S" model is a skimmer pump, the others are return pump specific models.
