Question about ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard
It's the power supply, the cd drive door will open in all cases if it has power - 12 volts to be more precise. Simple test: take the cd unit and the power supply out of the case of the pc, connect them and start the PSU (connect the green wire to a black one) - if the door opens now it means that there's a big short on the motherboard, if not the PSU is fried.

you can put the fan anywhere that it fits. You can never add too many. I have two added fans in mine. I put one in the front and one on the back (inside) where there are vent holes. Have the fans blowing in the same direction, towards the rear. Make sure the fans don't rub on any boards.
Your computer has one fan in the power supply and/or a small one on the cpu. You may not need more than that.
