arctic p12 vs Corsair ML120 Pro

Which fan is better? Its because I am looking at the corsair 4000d case and it has the Corsair ML120 pro fans and Im thinking if I should add on to the case or remove the Corsair ML120 pro as a whole.

P12s are for static pressure, ML120 are, iirc, a mix of both pressure and airflow fans. I would lean more to the ML120 side unelss you are pushing through a radiator. I have 2 ML140 in the front of my case and they run quiet and have had no issues with temperatures.

Edit: is this the 4000d airflow?

finally escaped fm2+

I know p12s are for static pressure but people are reccomending them as case fans too so I was debating to replace all of the fans or keep them, so thank you.

p12's are great all-around options for basically anything. They're most notable for static airflow, but they're just good fans, especially for the price. The ml120 pros aren't bad either. I wouldn't remove them unless you care about the aesthetic or want fan uniformity 

I am NOT a professional and a lot of the time what I'm saying is based on limited knowledge and experience. I'm going to be incorrect at times. 
My build:
CPU: 10700k Oc'd to 5.0 ghz                            GPU: RTX 3070 ventus 2x
Motherboard: Asus z490-v                                Cooler: Deepcool castle ex 120mm
Ram: Team tforce delta 32gb 3200mhz cl16     Case: Phanteks p418r (p360a ripoff) 
PSU: Apevia Prestige 800w

Notes:
Spoiler

To me the 10700k seems pretty underrated. It's a very solid cpu. at 5.0ghz it draws 175-185w under full load. the Asus z490-v is a sh*t teir motherboard, I wouldn't recommend it for anything past a 10600k for light oc's only. Tforce ram is pretty but cpu cooler clearance can be an issue on them, so beware. the RTX 3070 is obviously a great card, but the ventus 2x is just horrible. Don't buy it, not now, not ever. It's flimsy af, you can't increase the stock power limit, the cooler is worse than the one on the 3070FE. If it's a choice between this and nothing, choose nothing. The deepcool castle ex 120mm isn't really on sale outside of prebuilts, but it's a nice pretty cooler, gets my 10700k up to 96c after a prime95 cpu test for 15 minutes. The p418r is basically what it looks like. P360a, slap a few cyberpowerpc logos on it, and you're golden. The Apevia Prestige 800w is bad, but not terrible. Runs respectably quiet and isn't a bomb. More than a lot of PSU's in prebuilts can claim.

will it be bad if there were two diff types of fans?

Not really. I don't know what you mean about that, but it shouldn't have very many detrimental effects.

I would buy the Corsair 4000D and see if you like the fans that come with it.  If you do, buy more of them. I can tell you about a decade ago, I would buy fans based on someone else’s recommendation or a review I saw, to only be extremely disappointed. Someone would claim “these are better than Noctua” as often said, but all I hear is an annoying buzz coming from the hub, or they would just drone. It did spark an unhealthy obsession and I also figured out I am much more sensitive to noise than most. 
 

So, I would see if you like the fans in the case first. If they bother you, then look at something else. Maybe buy 1 of a different model, if you like it, buy more of them.

We recommend P12 because it's decent and cheap, not that you should replace every fan with them.
