This is what EK recommended, though mine was for the EN one (I can't see why it'd be any different for the non-EN).

EK-Ekoolant, Thermochill EC6 or Mayhem premixed coolants

All right but I thought EK said silver coil and pt nuke were causing the nickel plating problems. I'm guessing this is fixed now then or what. Thanks

No, distilled and pt nuke/kill coil does NOT cause corrosion. That was a bs excuse they gave to deflect blame on their subpar plating job. People have been using distilled plus pt nuke/kill coils for years now and it only caused corrosion with nickel plated EK blocks that were manufactured within a certain time frame. I'll let you put that one together yourself.
