Gack!

Well, they had them at Performance PC's for $180 - 190. But they're all sold out.

Wait...what? It's $176 for the Frost Tactile (model I own) and it sounds a lot like what you want.
Mechanical
Tactile
Soft "clack" noise on it (when you bottom out or when a key snaps back up fully.)
White back-lighting

The back-light is controllable over 8 levels (0 = Off - 7 = Full Brightness), and Deck's warranty supports modding too. So you can change just about anything on the keyboard besides the PCB/Switches (but you can change the LEDs) and you are still in warranty.

Honestly it's not that loud. It's a deeper pitch/tone than a Filco or a Ducky (because of the different keycap construction.)

The nice thing about a Deck too, is the keycaps show very little wear except on the spacebar.

The downside, is that some keys have uneven backlighting due to the use of only 1 LED.
The longer keys (ENTER, Backspace, Shift, & CAPS) all have that look (to slightly different degrees) though it's not bad. It sill looks good overall.

Once you get used to the keys feel you won't bottom out often (I still do on the space bar, but they've yet to make a space bar heavy enough to defeat my thumbs.) Thus no clack. Like I said, I only bottom out on the space bar.

Very cool.

Does anyone know about the Das Keyboard Model S Professional Silent?

I really like how Deck explains their Cherry key switches (here).

What about other brands? Zowie, for example?

Das keyboards are solid.

The Zowie board is also good, though it's nylon keycaps may not be as durable as some of the other boards offerings. They've yet to be extensively tested.
