Question Using Parts from a Fried MOBO

I know some folks who decided to upgrade their PC. They installed the memory in a pci slot. (Don't ask me how) Anyways, I now have the old PC and they are buying a new one.
My question is, if I purchase a new MOBO for this computer, will installing the old CPU and memory from the fried motherboard damage the new one? I'd really like to test out the old parts before buying new ones. Any advice? Thanks All!

It is very unlikely that it will damage the new mobo, it would have to cause some sort of short to do that and I doubt it would. That is the way I always test my mem and cpus anyway and have never had a problem yet.
