Question Running my Computer "Dry"

I have a MEGA 180 SFF PC and i was wondering,because i would do it sometimes, if you power up the computer w/o a Proccesor,HDD,RAM,etc would you run the risk of damaging the mobo?

LOL. Kinda harsh, but that was a funny and valid point. Oh, and so that you know, I have tried doind what you said (except the processor was still in) with my dads old computer. I didn't hear any bad hissing, but who knows. Just a loud BEEP and then I got scared and turned it off...

Prove? Nothing. Just sharing an experience for t35stryker, in case he was still thinking about doing what he said. And what the heck does this have to do with respect?

Erm...I was scrapping my dads old computer because he got new ones at his office...So he knew that I was going to scrap one and make another better, but the mobo and processor werent needed to do that...

Wink Let me Clarify

Thanks for the sarcasm,but the reason i ask this is because the MEGA 180 is HTPC and it can run as a HI-FI piece too. I wanted to make sure the PS worked cuz i didnt have a Proc,HDD,memory,etc. Remeber its a barebones SFF so i had to test it. Hope that helps clairfy it.
