Why I did not think of the little heat sinks the OC fanatics use is beyond me, thanks for the pointer. That is a quick easy solution that does not require navigating digikey's byzantine online catalog. I just cracked the thing open again and I see two jumper leads on the top side of the power supply PCB adjacent to the fan mount location. I'm guessing that is where Mike tapped the 12V, so I'll just bag an appropriate diameter quiet fan off newegg while getting the heat sinks and call it a day. And yeah, I'm using the cooler is better theory, there is no particular genius at work here. I had a heck of a time conjuring up a 128D that wasn't a disaster and spending three months looking for a working one with all its parts to come along again is not an experience I care to repeat, esp since they are going for $200+ now when they occasionally appear on eBay. I'll probably order some extra heat sinks and maybe a fan to integrate into my SX-64 as well, since that thing has cooked off two CIA's during it's life already.
