I used a strut similar to the below on a recent kitchen which gave a soft close effect and held up the doors well. I think the hinges we used may or may not have been unsprung but I can't remember so I'd check with the supplier of the strut for recommendations.

Your link does not seem to work for me, don't know why.

Blum aventos is what i use when using normal kitchen hinges on face frames but if their on butts i use similar to what mark has shown.
