    IDE PC Power Supply Just Handed in it's Notice

    My ATX case (for IDE) power supply just did it's last gig tonight after about 5 years of good service.

    Maybe it was the two extra fans I installed last week and today's high temps that caused it meet its maker ...

    Anyway I am in the market for another power supply which must have IDE connectors as I have no inclination to move over to SATA just yet as my Mother Board and drives are doing my fine for the moment.

    I really want to buy an IDE unit, though may be a bit limited on a Sunday in WA. Are there after market conversion adaptors available for the SATA power connectors that are on the modern power supplies?

    I think you'll find that any modern PS will still have plenty of the older style power connectors - I just bought a brand new case and it has 2 x sata style and 4 x IDE style.
