The heat should spread quite evenly to the whole Are of that block that contact the prosessor... the point where the actual heatpipe is, is not so much cooler than the metal around it. More heapipes just mean that there Are more pipes to draw away the heat, so They cool the contact area more.

on noctua coolers it should be fine, since the have heatpipes all over there
but what about cheap coolers with like two heatpipes?
something like this should have bigger temperature variation when u rotate it
I would say its minor. Very minor, 2-3C at most. Not enough to affect daily usage or mild oc.

If you are doing extreme oc, I don't think the cooler will be sufficient.
