Have you checked in BIOS to see if the drives show up? If they're not appearing in your Hard Drives selections in BIOS you could either have bad drives or bad SATA cables. Double check your power cables too.

Or try swapping the cables around a bit, sometimes(though it shouldnt) having the wrong cable in the wrong ports can cause drives not to appear, and do make sure as other person said that cables are well seated, sometimes a little wiggle is enough to make them "talk" to the system again :P

As far as the cpu, 70c or below load temps, but each cpu overclocks differently, it all depend son many many things, a good speed though to keep it simple would be 3.4-3.6-3.8-4.0+Ghz, just mind your voltages and load temps and read read read, knowhow can not be given it has to be learned first :)
