Sorry to ask, I do not doubt that you found a solution to the "cricket" noise issue, but how can you be sure the improvement comes from the thermal compound itself and not from the fact that, may be, you tightened the bulb differently with the silver one ?
Both could change the thermal resistance and decrease the cricket noise if it is what creates it.
