If you want to see all your case light up (which is one of the reasons you wanted to power on the MB) , just jump start your PSU.
That way all the lights + Fans will come on and you can see how the case looks.
Many people do this method to ensure their W/C loops are leak free before putting them in their case.

Mind you, I can't find a link from here ( and I know I've seen it too....) atm, but if you search the Net you can find how to do this.

But I think the OP wants to test if the mobo is DoA, since he bought it used. So that wouldn't work.
