I have both versions of T-Rex and the classic Venom like yours. Happy to provide whatever measurements you need. There is also a new top for Threadripper which I can give you info on as well.
Compression is minimal with these O-Rings. So I can't see it being a problem if you're cranking down the thumbscrews.

Let me shoot you a PM. I can mail off some to you as well to check out.
