I think it will be quick, however I am expecting a lack of communication. A couple of weeks ago, I got to watch an Intel RMA for the first time in a thread here on OCN. I saw the day he started the process, and I saw the end. Intel never contacted him. They sent him the prepaid thing without saying anything, he shipped it to Intel, Intel received it, completed the RMA, and sent it back all without every communicating a thing to him. It's like they're trying to be Mimes.
The process seemed to take place in a reasonable time frame, but they could have at least kept him updated. Good grief. lol Like, "Hey, went sent the prepaid thing". Then, "hey, we received your CPU". Then, "Hey, we are sending you the new CPU" (or whatever the case is), and then finally "It shipped. Here is the tracking number and here's the link to the page where it can be tracked. Thank you for your patience!"
I'm ranting, I'm sorry, but they're Intel! I mean, come on! lol
Anyway, what I'm saying is that I'm confident that they sent the prepaid airway bill, and I'm confident that they will receive the CPU when you send it, and I'm confident that you'll get it back (or a new one) within a reasonable amount of time - but without ever hearing from them.
