Seasonic.
Corsair AX is build by Seasonic basically X series.
All Seasonic built units on your list are semi-fanless, gold rated up to (when the inside of the case isn't too hot) 20% load, platinum 30% load.

The Seasonic PSUs would definitely be my first choice from that list. I'm not actually sure I would have any second choice.....

Seasonic, but the wattage is nuts - maybe the shops could be persuaded to get a lower wattage model? Corsair AX and HX as a second choice, stay away from the CX and TX.

The PC Power & Cooling Silencer got discussed recently, viewtopic.php?f=6&t=64974, but I have no personal experience with the brand.
