Seems to be the low profile coolers which are affected most by this, maybe it's because the heatpipes have more of their length in the curved portion.
Or Perhaps because the low profile coolers have their heatpipes "flat" in relation to the motherboard? Im beginning to wonder if coolers should more often be oriented N/S so that no one "side" of the heatpipes are lower than the other to reduce its efficiency.
