    It's just generic thermal grease.
    Silver thermal compound have better thermal conductivity.

    Silicone Grease is the traditional cheap and lower performance compound. Generally it's accepted that a silver based compound or similar has better thermal properties and thus better performance. I don't know by how much as it seems that no-one compares to it.

    Funny thing is I bought some the other day to compare to the high end silver stuff and will be testing it this week.
