Subject: Added Indium to HWS 

 I added some 0.004" thick indium sheet to the copper heat spreaders and and the heat sinks on the side of the HWS to try and improve the thermal contact. Once installed the steady state temperature of the sensor was the same as before. It's possible that the surface of the copper is even more uneven than 0.004".
