Closed Is this power supply compatible with my IDE hard drive? Tags: Power Supplies Hard Drives Power Components Product Last response: February 15, 2012 10:48 PM in Components Share theddd1 February 15, 2012 10:04:21 PM Im planning on buying this Power Supply. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I was wondering if this works in my system that uses an IDE hard drive, because in the reviews one person mentions that this PSU doesnt provide an IDE power interface? However I can see in the photos, it has the 4 slot power connectors that look like it is able to easily fit into the power slot at the back of the IDE hard drive. I just dont understand whether or not this power supply is compatible with my IDE hard drive and DVD drive. I already have the slave/master cable. And when looking at my current PSU it has the same 4 slot power connector that goes into my IDE.

Its fairly difficult to judge if its compatible by looking at their pictures so I guess I gotta just try it out. And buy connectors if i have to.
