    I prefer to see khaki and coyote. Desert camouflage colours, y'see...

    Either way, it's still far too colourful and exciting for the average Hexite!!

    Anyone? Isn't this mad? Isn't the whole idea of a heatsink that you increase the surface area and thus the airflow that is available to remove the heat? Aren't you insulating by covering? Am I missing something?

    A little, but it's a pretty small fraction of the area lost.

    Rough ballpark estimate, ignoring the heatsink efficiency:
    That cooler has 52 full size fins and 6 more smaller fins, so I'll assume that by covering the top surface of the top fin you're losing 0.9% of the area (1/110th). The power dissipated is (assuming unity efficiency) directly proportional to the fin area and temperature differential, so with the area decreasing the temp must rise to compensate. That extra 9% temp delta, on a 60 C temp delta, means that you're looking at a temperature increase of half a degree (and the real-world number will be lower, as the top fin is less efficient than the lower fins)
