what protein skimmer would ya'll recommend for a 125g?

Piecing some things together and I am trying to figure out what the best choice would be for a protein skimmer on the 125 reef tank i'm putting together. I want something that will go in my sump too. I have been thinking about the aquac EV180. Anybody know how loud these are? Are there any good and efficient skimmers that operate more quietly? Lastly, I'd like one that is low maintenance and is easy to dial in and leave alone (except for maint.) Thanks!

If you like the EV series, I would actually suggest the 240 instead. It's always best to go bigger than rely on the manufacturers rating, they often fall short. The main consideration is the room under the tank. The EV180 is 20" tall while the 240 is 26".
