I currently have a custom water loop build in a Evolv Shift X and im using the LL120 fans on the radiator but i feel like there isnt really much airflow thru the rad. Any suggestions would be great, i need RGB fans.

They don't look bad at all. I'll definitely look into those. Thanks

Would going with a non-rgb fan, and adding a Phanteks Halo work? They come in plastic or aluminum, and 12v rgb or 5v addressable. The Halos Lux Digital have 30 leds each, and install on top of the fan, you don't usually need longer screws. Lux means the premium aluminum frame, and Digital means the 5v addressable. They have all four combinations available.

Wow thanks that's a good idea and might even look nicer than a regular rgb fan.

While these may not be the best fans for radiators, I went with them for my 30mm-thick radiators and am happy with them. At 1000rpm, I can't hear them. Even at full tilt (2000 rpm), they are easy on the ears while still providing good flow (60.1CFM, 2.34mmH20): Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM

The Corsair Ml120 rgb, have really good static pressure, and are super quiet....

Not really. The static pressure rating is barely 10% better than the LL RGBs which are already bad to begin with. ML is 1.78 mmH2O and LL is 1.61 mmH2O from Corsair's own tech specs (https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Fans/RGB-%26-LED-Fans/ml-pro-rgb-config/p/CO-9050076-WW#tab-tech-specs and https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categories/Products/Fans/ml-config/p/CO-9050071-WW#tab-tech-specs).

Unless you're overclocking something like a 9900k, it probably doesn't matter. But if you are, I wouldn't put anything with less than 3.0 mm/H20 on my rad.
