Well, I'm not sure that the S-100 "standard" was all that rigidly adhered to either, not to mention that everything else was proprietary at that time (not to mention IBM's infamous Slot 8, PS/1's and MCA, non-standard memory modules, etc.)...

New PSU fans are still abundantly available up here in Toronto; if ya really need one, or a complete PSU (especially an odd-sized one) or anything else for an old PC, drop me a line.

because IBM no longer provided a firm ISA-equipped standard that everyone else could
clone, there was nothing but chaos, and that's the way it's been ever since.
The whole concept of "standard" was corrupted in the course of this evolutionary
step, and it was a step into the quagmire we're all swimming in today. <snip>

BTW, if that "bulky old PSU" still works, I'd happily relieve you of the fan and
PSU board, and pay you for the freight, except for where you're located. I find
them harder and harder to get,
