Default Power supply to replace multiple 12v 2amp adapters

<h2>I have around 40 USB-connected external hard-drives on my PC, each in its own enclosure. Each enclosure requires a separate wall-wart adapter providing 12v 2.0 amp power. So, I have a rat's nest of power-strips and adapters (not to mention the USB cables and hubs). Is there any way I could use a single power-supply for the lot? I have a spare pulled PSU - are there adapter-cables that go from Molex to the pins used by my HDD enclosures? If so, are there one-to-many splitters? Any other suggested approaches?
