    The only experience I've had is with Koolance, and in 6 years only changed it once. Hardly any build up or any signs of corrosion.

    Mostly, look for a coolant that lists anti-corrosives in the details/specs.

    Water coolant is a huge scam. Half the time all it consists of is water and radiator fluid at a huge markup.

    Distilled water offers the best performance and the cheapest price, provided you aren't running a mixed metal loop, which you shouldn't be doing in the first place.

    I agree with just plain, cheap, distilled water.
