Only on a rig designed for the purpose. The manufacturer is the only one likely to have this.

thanks for that i was just hoping there was a way because if the board is naff,i was going to go for the cheaper option and buy an amd board.i assume i can,t check to see if it is powering up.thanks for your quick response.
