You pretty much need the cpu...Cause it's the cpu that processes the bios codes to start the computer.

You can get an older refurbished single core to post test with. $20 I highly recommend keeping one around just in case, whether it’s a Sempron or a Celeron.

Will i at least get some fans spinning, i just want to know if the board has power, i have the asrock b75 pro 3 and it does not have and lights or anything like my older motherboard does which shows that it has power.

With no cpu i think it will power on and spin the fans but it wont do anything. No error codes no beeps no anything. Of course every board is differrent so who knows.
