Solved Making new power supplies with SATA connectors work with IDE drives Tags: Power Supplies SATA Hard Drives Components Last response: April 22, 2012 10:49 AM in Components Share jss2020 April 19, 2012 9:46:12 PM 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!
