I have an old computer with two IDE hard drives. The power supply has started making a very loud noise as if the fan is touching something so I want to replace it.

The new power supplies have SATA connectors but I have IDE drives. Would it be possible to make any new power supply work my old IDE drives?

Thank you!

Your IDE (a.k.a. PATA) drives should be using the standard 4-pin Molex Peripheral power connectors that are still provided on any current power supply unit on the market that you buy.
