it would increase surface area, but I don't think you would gain more than 2c.

I don't think it will give any advantage at all in my humble opinion.

I think it will ... when air is blown upon the heatsink it will be able to go to any side it chooses, thus making the contact-area bigger and prolly better cooling
but indeed don't think more than 2C decrease

your saw must be smaller than the fins of the heatsink. For a bigger surface.

But when you put a fan on it my whole theorie makes no sense
Because I don't know how the air will move between the heatsink
