More Testing For Conductive Cooling

Today we did a non-overclocked test on the filed down complex part. It performed better than it had previously before filing but it's still lacking compared to the store bought water block. We also milled a bump to put inside the complex design to hopefully optimize it further. Over the weekend the mounting system for the simple part was finished and the part itself had a gasket added today. The plan to move ahead from now is to remove the complex part for modification, while doing testing on the simple part, then test the complex part while doing modifications on the simple part. This method will allow us to always be testing a part while making design optimizations and will hopefully allow us to avoid a testing bottleneck where we have nothing to do other than watch prime95 run.
