self built computer not working

i built a computer a couple of weeks ago, i powered it on without the processor, as it hadn't come yet, hoping for a beep or something to flicker in the screen but instead i got nothing on the screen not even a flicker, no beeping, no lights everything powers on as i can open and close my disk drive, my water cooling system is working and so is my hard drive and my motherboard should be working as it is plugged into the water coolling system i have ordered my processor but should i be worried?
