you have four choices in life:

1) looks good, performs bad
2) looks bad, performs bad
3) looks bad, performs good
4) looks good, performs good

the heatsinks depicted in your post belong to category 1. In horizontal position with a deep well the heat from the lowest fin heats the next succeeding fin.
Why, silly hare, are you fleeing from the fierce jaws of the lion now grown tame?
