    I'm pretty new to 3d printing and I was changing out my nozzle and broke the heat element and now I'm looking for a new hot end. I was looking at the e3d 24v due to the form about dual extrudes saying that 12v doesn't work with the motherboard. I chose the e3d due to the fact that it seams the most versatile and has a huge community behind it. but if the 24v wont work for the printer I don't mind springing for a OEM hotend. Many thanks to everyone willing to help.

    Ive also been looking at the E3D CHIMERA+ for its dual extrusion ability.

    24V is the correct one, the C2 only supplies 19V to the mainboard, but that was done as a cost saving method as there are no 19V speced parts in the 3D printing world. You could even replace the C2 power supply with a 24 V and it will work.
