Favorite sump pump?

I'm in the planning phases of upgrading to a 125g tank and am looking on some advice for a sump pump.

Currently I use a mag drive for my reef tank but it's a little too loud. Do you guys have any suggestions for some other decent pumps?

I can't believe that a mag drive is loud. Have you taken it apart? Mine runs silently.

I've only pulled the impeller out to clean it in hopes that it will run a little quieter.

Mebbid, mine was a little noisy due to vibration. I hadn't attached the rubberized base pad initially. I pulled it out, attached the pad and it's been quiet ever since. Could this be your problem?
