You won't be able to make it POST without a CPU.


Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 Ghz  | Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 |  PaliT GTX 1050Ti  |  8gb Kingston HyperX Fury @ 2933 Mhz  |  Corsair CX550m  |  1 TB WD Blue HDD


Inside some old case I found lying around.

Hello Damnkid,

Try plugging gpu, LEDs and fans into your system. I don't think a mobo will even generate beep codes without a cpu.

what's the motherboard? it completely depends on what model it is as to whether or not it will boot in any capacity without a CPU. some will and give you a beep code, others will not, if it doesn't then there not going to be any way of testing it without a CPU

Hello,

It didn't do anything when it was wired up and you attempted to power on with no cpu? Even with no cpu it should at least turn on fans. Try removing ram and gpu and see what happens. Inspect board and make sure there is no obstructions that could short it. I have done this numerous times with older boards and it did not damage any of them, fans would spin and all ports where powered except audio and USB. Floppies and IDE drives would still spin up.
