Help with Intel processor

Hey, i bought a 2550k 5 days ago and my being curious i touched the top silver part on the processor while i was on a carpet and now im afraid that its not going to work due to static. It was in the plastic protection case that it came in and it never came out of the case. I only opened the top of the case and touched a silver top part of it. My question is will it be affected and will it still work?

    It'll be fine. It's actually pretty hard to kill a chip from ESD. You would have had to rub the chip itself against the carpet (or a cat, lol) for a few minutes to really do damage.
