  1. My CPU is a i5 - 2500K.
  2. Keep it in the little plastic container that came with the box.

    No big deal. Just turn it over and put the metal smooth side down on a table or in a box. Put the pin side up. Put a box or something over it so it doesn't get dusty.

    Anti-static bag + put it in a safe location where it will not get crushed by something/someone.

    If I were in your situation, I would securely tape the anti-static bag with the CPU in it inside the computer case and close it up until the motherboard comes back.
  6. Thank you guys alot. I'm going to put it in the anti-static bag, then safely putting it in a closed box. I'm surprised how quick it was to get alot of helpful answers.
