Without a processor a board will do sweet naff all.
Just because fans spin and what not doesn't mean the board works, the fan will spin regardless of what's in the socket.

Without a processor that you know works you cannot determine whether the board's any good.
It's kind of like asking how can I tell if the car works and goes without putting any petrol in it.

Maybe take it to a shop and ask them to check it for you. Most shops will have CPU's from customer upgrades or replacements. Might cost you a few dollars but cheaper then buying a CPU only to find out the board may be bad.
