What is your budget?

 

I would buy nothing below Gold PSU and only with modular cable management, none of your mentioned PSU have this.Maybe consider to get one of these? I can recommend Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 550

well the budget is not that tight but the choice is very limited i wanted to get a be quiet psu but the  lowest powerful one is 850w and it's expensive  i looked just now  for a seasonic and the  only one available *probably* is a 750w one and it's bit expensive ill check if they still have one in stock , but maybe help me choose from the  3 ones   that probably i'll end up getting one of them ://

Tbh I looked them all up and I'm not a fan of any of these. 

None have modular cable management which is a no for me. You will possibly end up by having some cables hanging around your case which you won't need.

Efficiency is also not great in these. I'd rather get something with Gold certification as I said before.

If you want to choose between those I would take Thermaltake only because I had good experience with the "Berlin" PSU years ago, but only because of that.

All aren't great but the Master Watt might be the best of the bunch...

Any other options??

Can you give us a link to the stores you are choosing from? Would be easier that way.

Well, the only thing I can suggest is to look up available models at https://www.cybenetics.com/index.php?option=power-supplies. You can find fan RPM/noise level at certain loads
