Not a problem.

Apply a rice grain sized dot, of thermal paste, on the center of the processor. Then seat the heatsink on top, using the weight of the heatsink, to spread out the thermal paste. Twist the heatsink, to the left and right a little bit, to squeeze out any air bubbles, left in the thermal paste, to increase contact, between the processor and heatsink.

also go to artic silver 5s website for their instructions, they recommend a different process where instead of a single rice grained size dot, they put a vertical line for dual core processors and a horizontal line for quad core processors.

Wouldnt those instructions only apply to AS paste tho. Arctic cooling puts horrid instructions for their mx-1 so im also curious.

If you're using the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7...you don't need thermal paste. It has a heatpad. You can use paste if you want though, but it's not necessary with that heatsink/fan.

Like carnageX said, you don't need thermal paste, as you're using the AF7 Pro, which comes with a better thermal pad.

Don't worry....about the static wrist strap. All you need to do, is touch any metal part of the case's chassis, and you're grounded.
