Default CD-ROM Issue

Do I need a device driver for an old cd-rom or will my motherboard pick it up and take care of it?

It should just work.

Also, whenever I play an online game, or something with precise graphics, my fans start to run really fast with a lot of noise. Would adding more fans help with this or does anyone know about any good liquid coolant system?

The fan thing : The fans most likely have a thermometre (SP TIRED ) and they will go faster when the temperature goes up. More fans could potentially help, yes.
