You haven't given much away.

Any other fans operating (system/PSU)?
Any leds on the front panel illuminated?
Any indication that the drives are starting up?

When you say "small movement", do you mean that it is spinning slowly or that it moves slightly and then stops?

EDIT.

Ok, you've updated your post. How have you checked the above? Did you use another system? 13 minutes to test, including post time, is pretty impressive.

If you are sure the above are all working and the CPU fan has stopped, then you can pretty much be sure that the cpu is cooked. The status of the motherboard will be unknown.

Ok.

I would think your processor is baked. More often than not, the board will be undamaged, however, I have had instances where both have died.

To test the motherboard, you will need a processor (and a new fan). Unless it's something remarkable, probably not worth the bother. Replace both, buy a new system or barebone.
