Toothpaste is also an excellent substitute for thermal paste. Its structure decays after a few days, especially if the operating temperatures are high.

Can I use silicone instead of thermal paste?

Sure, you could use it, but it’s an insulator, not a conductor, so you’ll get poor thermal transfer. Actually, pure silicone grease is an excellent heat conductor, as well as being able to stand up to the same temps that standard thermal compounds do….and higher.
