Jdrom; I meant more in vertical alignment in general and just used the raven as an example (as it's the only one I know offhand). Obviously the ravens have great cooling so it shouldn't be an issue, but in a case with less airflow and vertical alignment negate some of the benefits of vapor-x? If you're right about the minimal liquid in the heatpipes, it probably won't change too much. Given the noticeably better cooling in the Vapor-Xs they've gotta have at least enough liquid to put a decent amount of vapor in the heatpipes though .... or so I suspect :D
Ah I see. Well there aren't too many other cases like that are there? I think the only way to design a vertical layout is to have a bunch of fans at the bottom.

Guess we'll know more when somebody tries it out
