I'm on the search for a silent wired mechanical keyboard.
I've narrowed my list to:
  • Corsair k70 mk2 mx silent (Strafe mk2 silent is also available at the same price)
  • Razer blackwidow elite orange switch
  • Logitech G815 linear switch
  • Roccat vulcan 121 red switch.
These are the options available here.
I need it mostly for programming and a bit of gaming.
I need it to be as silent as possible and a workhorse of course.
The price of all is very close accept the vulcan which is significantly lower.
I would love to hear your opinion.

I don't know if I'd recommend the corsair keyboard as it has some reviews that say it isn't reliable to sum it up. Although every product has bad reviews. I've been using a corsair keyboard for over a year now, however I suppose quality can vary depending on the product.
 
I'm partial to razer, and enjoy their switches a lot, but they tend to be expensive. (If someone says razer is bad, they're dumb. they're sometimes not better/just equal at a higher price.)
The corsair is a bad choice in my opinion. I know of 2 K70's who failed.
The roccat is a good candidate IMO

As for the logitech: it has linear switches, which are "mechanical" but are not clicky, and don't have a tactile bump, so I really don't enjoy them, but some people really do.
