Yes you will be fine
Don't apply to much,AS5 is Electrical Conductive

Only if you get it on the wrong parts ;) 

I always reapply paste to my GPUs as soon as I get them out of the box but I do not use conductive paste. I used to use Arctic Silver Ceramique but now I use IC Diamond.

yeah get better paste. as5 is old... Today people just get it because of its name. Even googling thermal paste shows as5 everywhere. I used to like it, but now there are better pastes to do.
