Default Installing Cd Drive

I've heard that you need an internal audio plugin and jumpers on the drive to switch between master and slave..I cant seem to find either of these, only the SATA power connector and the SATA connector for the motherboard.

Should be a black connector near the longer IDE connector. It should be labeled on the motherboard.

Make sure there is no floppy in the drive. Is your hard drive formatted?

That is a tad bit high. Is your fan plugged into the motherboard header and spinning?

Yes it is, i know that is abnormally high...lol The fan is spinning but it says it is at 110 degrees celsius...I took out the cpu and it wasnt hot at all, like room temperature.
EDIT: Should i check again, or would it fry the cpu?

It should be turned off when you check it. Make sure the heatsink is making full contact with the CPU and is properly locked down. How fast does the hardware monitor say the CPU fan is spinning?

The Cpu fan is gay. Theres four pins that you have to push in with your fingers and one of them doesnt go in. But it is still spinning. Im pretty sure its making full contact with the CPU because the thermal grease that i applied to the heatsink is on the CPU now.

EDIT: It is a Thermaltake / Silent 775D / Socket 775 / Copper Core / Copper Heatpipes / CPU Fan
EDIT 2: It is broken... The Pins are bent back and are near impossible to push in... Should i send it back?'
FINAL EDIT(Maybe): I fixed the pins, pushed them together and now the fan works good, its pushed in all the way...Now to check if its at 110 degrees again...

OKAY. I Pushed in the Cpu fan all the way. Im getting a constant 63 to 67 degrees celsius in the bios.. Does that sound right? i heard you can get around 50 degrees with aftermarket coolers like this one but maybe cause my processor is quad core it heats up more?
CPU Fan Speed 2191 RPM
AUX Fan Speed 5314 RPM
NForce Fan Speed 3540 RPM

Im still getting a "PXE-E61 Media Test Failure" at the second screen but it doesnt shut off or anything.
