Stern SPIKE System Plug-N-Play Quiet Fan Kit – 500W


See secondary picture for compatibility list.
Anyone that has a Spike pinball machine knows that the fan is WAY TOO LOUD and really annoying, especially in a home environment.
This fan kit is designed to replace the stock 34.6dB fan in Stern Spike power supplies to make it almost silent. This replacement 12.8dB fan has less CFM (airflow) than the Stern one, but the practical difference is that  the fan simply runs a bit longer to drop the temp back down to ~104F or less once the temperature in the power supply turns it on. In testing with this fan installed on multiple machines, the RSP-500-48 power supply never exceeded ~122F (the power supply critical shutdown threshold is ~158F), however, all possible pinball machine configurations cannot be known, so you are installing this kit at your own risk.
The kit includes the fan with custom wire length and connector, two thread-cutting screws, and illustrated installation instructions.
