Which Campy chain for 2001 Record drivetrain ?

I think I know the answer to this, but wanted to confirm before buying.
My primary ride is a mix of 2000/2001 Record and Chorus 10 speed. It's
time for a new chain. Will the new 5.9 mm chains work with this ? If
so, which run better, the 5.9's or the 6.2's ? Also, while I have some
experts reading, which quick-connect links work with 11 t cogs? A few
years ago, I had problems with Wipperman and SRAM links skipping on the
11of an 11-23 cassette. I sold those wheels for other reasons, but want
to run an 11-23 on my race wheels next season. Despite my love for
(almost) all things Campagnolo, all of their proprietary chain joining
systems have been a pain in the ass and I prefer to stick with a
quick-connect link.

TIA for replies, happy holidays.....................

Yes, of course. Campag 10s spacing hasn't changed since it was
introduced in 2000.

Both work,5.9 are a little quieter..

Yes, the wipperman but it does have an 'yp' and 'down'..the most gentle
curve of the link goes toward the cogs.

That's correct. Read the instruction that comes with the link.

You can use the 5.9 mm chain w/o problem. I am told that they run
quieter but my hearing is so bad, I'd never know. The Wipperman link
is the best one to use/re-use. It actually has a left and right side
and will skip on small cogs unless installed properly. The Wipp. will
disconnect easiest, even when dirty.

I've been most pleased with KMC DX10S. This is a narrow, 10sp chain
and it comes with a link that works fine. It co$ts like Shimano 105
but looks like Ultegra. I'd rate it a 'best buy'.
