✔ Best Answer
The stock heat sink has the fan blowing air down through the cooling fins in order to draw the heat off of the assembly. The hot air then continues down until it hits the motherboard and turns outward and and eventually away from the board and into the air flow through the case. Some of this air will pick up additional heat from other heat sinks on the motherboard near the CPU, which is also part of the plan.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
