Hey everyone. I'm looking to swap my SP120s on my Corsair H100i AIO, since they're getting old and kind of noisy. I can't decide between the Noctua NF F12 and the ML120. Both have descent CFM and static pressure. The ML should be better (and looks better) But I heard they are much more noisy than advertised. Any thoughts?

They're both magnetic levitation fans.
There's actually 2 versions of the ML120: a 1600rpm and a 2400rpm. Obviously, the 1600rpm is a less than ideal choice for a radiator fan.

The faster ML120 has more raw power than the NF-F12.

Up to you.
As long as the fans you're replacing the stock ones with are just as strong or stronger, I've no complaints.
