Actually, you would be wise not even trying to power up the rig without the CPU in there, so I advise you to forget that one for now until you have all the pieces.

The CPU is literally the first thing in the boot process that receives power so without it the BIOS doesn't even run and you won't get anywhere.

I have to agree, leave the thing until you get all your parts
