I'm inclined to think air flowing up would work better since as the air is heating it wouldn't rise and slip out the sides of the heatsink. Also, I've heard you can decrease temps by covering the sides (spaces between fins and between the HS and fan) with electrical tape, since it funnels all the air through the fins. I haven't done it yet, but I might at some point and check for temp changes.
