hi i have a question, before i add fluid to my cooling system, if i turn the computer on and check if everything installed correcly will the cpu get damage if theres nothing to cool it?

Respectable
it should be fine for a few seconds or if you limit the temp with software like Coretemp or via bios. you should be able to test your cooling without harming the CPU by using a spare fan header or one on a working system.
