They're ideally supposed to be operating vertically so that the liquid can run down to the base and the vapor rises to the top, away from the cpu. However, most tower-style coolers spend most of their lives with their heatpipes horizontal to the ground (and probably a bit inverted due to flexure of the mobo and such) yet they still work.

Can you please enlighten me on how the wick would draw the vapor back?
