You could be right, but as CPU use is bursty and the heatsink is 
surrounded by insulating air, the heatsink might still be hot after 
the CPU has cooled. And isn't the radiator in a house hotter at the 
top than at the bottom?

All I know for sure is:

1. hot CPU and cold heatsink is a bad sign

2. not to put my finger on a heatsink while computer is in use : )
