From your list, go Silverstone modular. Antec makes superior PSU's, though, so look into them.

woah someone said this in the silverstone reviews

This might be a nice pwrsupply but it will not work in a gigabyte motherboard that requires -5V on pin 20 of ATX pwr connector. This pwr supply has no -5V so check your motherboard before ordering.

can u figure out if my a8n-32 deluxe board will work with this psu?
or is that gigabyte mobo a fluke?

the ultra would probably be the best stability wise. and force flex cables are easy to work with.

oh and snake eyes don't say antec makes superior psu's. they have really bad quality control and do not fix the problem
