Does it matter which side of the board you mount the heatsink/fan too?
Yes. The key heating components, like power management unit and CPU, are placed at the bottom side.

Which I find to be a design flaw. If you place a heatsink of a fan you will make the board much thicker. They could place the CPU on the other side in thiis case the heatsinks would perfectly fit with the height of the pins
