Question Replacing fans on the H150i pro RGB

Can you replace the fans on the H150i pro RBG with 3x LL120 RGB 120mm Dual Light Loop RGB LED PWM Fan.
If so is this advice-able and would it affect the cooling performance significantly
I plan to overclock my i7 8700k to 5GHz or high depending on silicon lottery

The ML fans definitely have better performance. The LL fans definitely look better.
For quiet ... hmmm ... probably pretty close. Both are very quiet but the ML fans do spin faster.
That said, the LL fans would like be enough ... you might to talking about a difference of 2C (guesstimate) in cooler temperatures ... so from maybe 35 to maybe 37C.

You will be able to run the delid with any fan tooling along at 800 rpm with a very small coolant delta. I am playing around with my H115i Pro and can keep it under 4C with 140mm below 800.

I have issue with the ML coming with the aio, they are grinding / rattling and it's VERY ANNOYING. I don't know if there is any fix or if there is a better option for fans?

Thanks

hey guys, im running 3 ll120 rgb on my hydro 150i for more than a year now, and i just noticed that of the three fans, two cant go lower than 720 rpm, and one not lower than 670 rpm, even though i set them up to run at 600rpm in icue.
they are connected to the hydro's 3 fan headers. im running a commander pro with more ll140 fans, which are running as set. according to the data sheet of the ll120 they should be able to run between 600 - 1500 RPM. any ideas what the "problem" might be?

+-10% on fan specifications is usually listed as the standard variance. However, it may also be related to the controller. You can try swapping the fan connectors 1-3 on the splitter and see if there is change. Either way, I am not sure how you could tell the 720 fan from a 660 or 600 with LL120s. That is very low noise level.

I was pretty sure you were reporting observed speeds, not a true noise complaint. However, the counterpoint is if you can't hear them, then let it go as long as the fans are otherwise following directions. If one or more fans will not stick to assigned values, that is more concerning.
