Here is the manual for your motherboard (since describing a diagram probably isn't very useful...) http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket939/A8N-SLI/e2024_a8n-sli.pdf
You want to look at pages 27-35, they describe what you need to plug into the motherboard. Basically make sure you have connected:
1) 24-pin power cable (from power supply) 2) 4-pin power cable (for CPU from power supply) 3) Any case fans with 3/4 pin connectors. 3) hard drives (SATA or IDE) 4) USB front panel ports 5) Audio front panel ports 6) Case plugs (power LED, hdd LED, power switch, and reset switch).
When you click on the download button it will take you to the download page. Here is where it gets really cool! Use the ASUS Navigation Wizard and it will detect your motherboard and all the drivers, utilities and manuals related to your specific model.
In my experience, there are some fans that are loud. It could be bad bushings or possibly a fan that is out of balance. The Cool and Quiet utility will not solve that problem. Are you sure it's the CPU fan? If the computer (or it's parts) are less than a year old, they should be under warranty. If it's the case fan, I'd replace it with either a new single-speed fan or one that has a variable speed adjustment.
