More Cooling Test Updates

Today while continuing to mill the aluminum part, we began a new type of test: we are now putting a commercial water block in our test system to compare the performance of our 3D printed base directly to that of commercial water blocks. The first tests did not look as promising as last time, with the commercial block beating ours by roughly 5-7 degrees Celsius, but after we modify the 3D printed part and run another round of tests, hopefully the results will improve.
