Best HOB Skimmer for 120g

I am looking to replace (possibly) my Coralife Skimmer on my 120g.

I would like a HOB skimmer that preferably has an external pump versus a pump that sits in the water. However, if that is not possible, I would like the lowest and most efficient pump.

This has been a FOWLR tank, but I may be adding some corals in the near future.

What would be your choice of a skimmer?

I like and have been using a BakPak by Cpr for years, it does a great job, but does have an in the tank pump.

I have this same model on my 75 and it's pretty quiet.
