Selling my i5-3570k and P8Z77-V Pro board on eBay, however, before I list it, I want to know how to pack it properly. I have the original box for the motherboard and the CPU, but both are missing their packaging, so I'm not sure how to ship it.

Not really sure exactly what you should do, but I'd imagine you'd want some sort of anti-static bag/packing material.

Best case scenario you the little plastic box that the CPU came in, if not I would just ship it in the motherboard. Put the mobo in the anti-static bag that came with it and put the mobo in a box. Put that box in a shipping box and fill gaps with air bubble wrap. Try to document everything you do on video so you have proof that you package it properly if buyer tries to scam. Purchase insurance for the replacement cost.

Also get video evidence of the CPU working and mobo working and you taking it out and putting it in the box.

You can decide not to keep evidence but it's safer because scams so happen and eBay almost always sides with the buyer.

And I would try to get a local buyer first, less chance of scams and you would be charged ridiculous fees, (eBay charges 12-13% (eBay 10% Paypal 3%) of final sale price + shipping.)
