You need at least the CPU for the system to power on. Without memory, though, it will just give you beeps. Why on earth would you try powering the incomplete system is beyond me. Curiosity? ;)  Nothing wrong with the motherboard until you prove otherwise. Get all parts and plug them in.

I'm sorry but this made me laugh :D 
Also you can damage the motherboard if you power it on without a CPU.
