A lot of those people are completely misinformed. I know what heatpipes are supposed to do but out of all the old heatsinks I had with heatpipes, I cut them open and found no liquid at all. Others have found the same thing: [Phoronix] Heatpipes: The Investigation Begins

The last one I cut open was a Thermalright XP-90. Supposedly one of the better heatsink manufacturers, right? No liquid at all and the copper "powder" was so thin around the inside of the heatpipe that it was barely existent.
