Litotech, you are correct. In a perfect world more air turbulence would/could improve temps (see the OCZ vendetta 2 vs Xigmatek reference desing!) BUT in this case the poor fan is gasping for breath as it has to suck all the air in through those fins and then try and push it out. It is sad, as a small tweak or two would make this one truly kick ass cooler. I can just imagine what V8 2.0 would be like if there was a 38mm fan in the center and 1 on each side! OMG the possibilities!
