Once of the main concepts in laminar flow is to create as little friction as possible between the fluid and the surrounding surfaces. Without sufficient contact between a heatsink and the cooling fluid (be it air or water or soemthign else) there will be poor heat transfer. This is one case where laminar flow may be a disadvantage.
