I could be wrong here, but I'd think that the Noctua fans have better fan blades and frames and therefore are overall quieter.
Many reviews are placing the ML120 at 40db at max 12v, and the Noctua around 42. Sadly I cant find a review that tests both in the same environment so its not apples to apples comparison
