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?
