CPU interconnects using copper vs interconnects using silver would not see much difference because the thermal conductivity of copper and silver are pretty similar. The savings would not help clocks much, and the price would not be worth it.

Thermal conductivity isn't the important thing. Electrical resistance is. Resistance is what causes heat to be generated inside the CPU.
