Should the fan blow or suck on the heatsink?

From Here (http://www.heatsink-guide.com/content.php?content=case.shtml)

Note that the best orientation of your CPU fan's air flow (suck/blow) also depends on the design of your CPU heatsink.

Though i know thats not exactly helpfull.
In general, the fan blows air onto the heatsink (see why here (http://episteme.arstechnica.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/77909585/m/7390989362?r=6050900462#6050900462) )
