This question was asked in another post that it was later edited out of. I'd like to re-post the RAW answer for future reference. The context was high-level melee combat where the the PC was going to be fighting a Magus. He had attained an item providing temporary Silence Aura. He wanted to know what the Magus' abilities would be within the aura (no save because the character accepted the silence onto himself).

Magus cannot activate spells that require verbal components in silence, just like any caster.

He can still deliver touch spells he has prepared through his weapon with Spellstrike (level 2) if the spell was cast prior to the silence, as this does not dispel it, but he cannot activate a new spell (with Spell Combat) to deliver this way unless it was prepared with the Metamagic Silent Spell.
