Which coolant should I use?

I will be buying the "Alphacool Eiswasser Crystal" premix since it looks good and I couldn´t find any problem/bad review with it online.

Thanks guys, see my other post to help me correct my water cooling loop if necessary.

I´ve heard of the PrimoChill True Infused (which I like), but it also seems to clog up the system. There are some similar-looking coolants from PrimoChill (f.e. PrimoChill Ice Clear), are they any better?

I´m planning to use Thermaltakes RGB Fittings and I´m looking for a coolant which is easy to maintain and absorbs the light of those fittings well (transparent or white).

I looked at it, seems pretty good. I also really enjoy the look of the PrimoChill Coolants, is there any PrimoChill Clear Coolant (True Infused, Ice, Vue) which doesn´t clog up the system within weeks? And what do you think about this watercooling company called alphacool and their products (Is their coolant any good?)

My recommendation is EKWB for clear coolants and Mayhems for Opaaue fluids.

Like the ek cryo stuff. Lasts and works but stains the hell out of the premochill advanced soft I use.

I've used EK Cryofuel (clear one) to refill my CM Nepton 120XL AiO. Works great. Given EK's reputation with water cooling, I didn't really have any doubts to begin with...
