    The parts list does not say directly what material the O-Ring is made from, it should not get too hot as it's above the heat sink, but if the fans failed then it could get very hot. Maybe the E3D website has more info, but initially I didn't get any hits, they may be just part of a kit.

    As a users of O-Rings in high temperature applications in the past I know it's worth taking care here.

    I forgot where now but somewhere in the build docs or the E3D store it says the Orings are Nitrile, which these are.

    Ah I read it from the Titan upgrade on the E3D website

    http://e3d-online.com/BigBox/bigbox-dual-titan-upgrad

    The dimensions came from an E3D I emailed them. They said you should be able to find them at a hardware store no mention of specail high temperatures.

    However @Greg Holloway would you be so kind as to bless or not bless these sorry to bug you.

    Any stiff rubber will do. if your fan fails the last thing I would worry about are the $0.08 rubber orings.
