yup, on the older cpu stuff not needing heatsinks, but power transistors
did need some heatsinks

havent tested the blowing down vs sucking up heat ... think its
sorta the same issue in that the air still has to make a 90degree turn
within the heatsink but should work better for exhausting ( less
turbulence )

for amd cpu's, i tend to blow air sideways across the heatsink instead
of onto the cpu
