Do u-shape heat pipes like on the hyper 212 work twice as well as the ones on say a Cooler master vortex?

Also, please state whether flat copper base or hdt is better. I know this topic is quite debated so try not to get violent about it. I can not decide beteen Xigmatek Aegis and Cooler master v6....

*EDIT* I think that I am getting v6 regular not GT, but feel free to answer my question and convince me otherwise if you want.

The u-shape heat pipe can be similar heat transfer performance of double heat pipe. and in the limited CPU heat spreader area, 3or 4 heat pipe is maximum quantity to fill the small copper base. if add more heat pipes, some heat pipe can't be on the top of CPU to transfer heat directly.
