My 'puter has heat pipes on XP90 h/s also gigabyte 6800gt has 2 sided h/s with heat pipes.
Will these suckers still work if I turn 'em upside down? (as in Lian Li V series or silverstone TJ06 case?)

Yes, they have wicks inside to draw the liquid back to the evaporation point. Of course gravity is better...
