The connector in question is firewire. Are you sure that Jetway board has firewire? Most lower cost boards do not.

It's fine if it's a stock cooler, yes.

Firewire is like USB only a bit faster. Some devices, mostly external hard drives, use firewire. If you have no firewire devices stop worrying about it.

If you stopped posting separate threads I would be able to look up and see what you built :) 

I don't keep everyone's config in my head ya know ;) 

Download and use use Real Temp to monitor your CPU core temperatures. These are different and more accurate than the single CPU temp your BIOS displays. If your core temps reach 70C, it's usually time to worry... but that depends on which CPU you are using.
