    Just wanted to thank the op for the information provided here! I picked up an Aerosmith Pro a couple weekends ago and it sounded like a jet turbine starting up when the fan kicked on. LOL.

    Also, thank you for providing individual part numbers AND a complete kit. It's nice when people figure something out and SHARE what they know for both DIYers and non-DIYers.

    Thanks again!

    Quoted from vireland:

    Oh, there's no real secret for the Spooky/Alternate Front Fan Stern power supplies, either. Just like with the DIY I posted that started this thread, if people want to roll their own on this version, too, that's great. I'm just providing a finished kit that gives less-techy pinheads the right fan without having to crimp connectors on and with the correct length of wires protectively shrink wrapped. A solution for those that DON'T want DIY and just want to have a fan and some install instructions that they can install and enjoy with a minimum of hassle.

    Your perspective of what you are providing is spot on. Thanks a TON for sharing how you are solving a problem and then being up front and totally honest on what you are providing as a solution. Your mark up, IMHO, is spot on also! You don't seem to be here to rape fellow hobbyist... it's a total breath of fresh air... again IMHO. Thanks again for sharing your info AND providing a non-DIY solution!
