Not really. Then pastel coolants ain't popular cause they like to gunk everything up over time and tend to separate. Other than that you should be fine.Is this something I should pay attention to? https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Categ...Combo/p/CX-9040002-WW#cc-compatibility-others
OR will any coolant do, looking for either clear or white

Thanks, looking at using Something like Liquid Utopia with Distilled Water or DI if I can find it locally.
I ran my current system with it and distilled water for 2 year. I broke it down last week to sell parts and 5he water was still clean. No corrosion or growth in the loop at all.Don't worry about the differences between distilled and DI. For water cooling purposes they are the same. Just never use tap.
I have heard good things about Liquid Utopia too. Personally I have been using EK's translucent Cryofuel lately, as it seems easier and quicker to find it. (They even used to carry it at Microcenter, so I could just go get it, but now they only carry the opaque stuff )
Just don't mix coolants. That can have unpredictable results, as you don't know exactly what chemicals are in them. It's also safer to buy pre-dyed coolants if you want color, not to try to dye them yourself. Whatever you do, never, ever, nerver use food coloring!
If I were doing water cooling again, I would probably use car coolant. It has lubrication properties and anti corrosion properties, as well as biocide.
