You can run a waterblock in any orientation, the only thing you need to worry about is filling and draining which you can do with the computer flipped any direction and you also need to make sure that the pump won't be sucking in air.  Just make sure you get the air out while filling so the only air is in the reservoir away from pump.

The only thing that matter when it comes to most cpu blocks is the correct flow direction.

Ofc, orientation doesnt matter, u shouldn't have any air in the system beyond that which settles in the reservoir.

Speaking of which, you will still have to ensure ur res is above the pump.

 

Beyond that, its just flow direction u need to ensure is around the right way.
