you should try to maintain the heatsink fins perpendicular to the ground as heat rises

unless it is fan forced.

can you describe the heatsinks? are there holes in the top of the amp to let heat out?

No, if it is an amp that tends to run hot or just you like to crank up the volume, it is not its optimal position. As stated by other fellows, you must mantain the heatsink perpendicular to the floor to mantain air flow. Unless of course if fan cooled.

Can you post a picture of the heatsinks? Maybe they're mounted in a particular way...

Simply put: NO.
The R1040 already has a relatively small area heatsink that is designed as vertical 'chimneys'. If you put it to the side, it wil not have adequate cooling.
