I am considering a thermal design and due to space requirements I was considering different orientation of the heat sink, namely putting it bottom down, obviously, and puttin it on the side as in figures provided. I've seen a similar approach with water cooling but I am wondering if this would work as well and if the cooling effect is the same? Anyone had any experience with this?

NB: I am using forced air cooling.

Heat sink on the bottom or on the side?
