should the fan be pushing the air out the back or the top (the way I have it)?
Yes, you should rotate the heatsink so that the heat is exhausting out of the rear fan. The remaining heat that hasn't been removed by the rear fan will then be exhausted out of the top.

I disagree, your just creating turbulence instead of a defined ventilation path.

Should be able to, however it's not going to offer you that much improvement over 4.0ghz
I'd play around with the vcore and see how low you can get it while still staying stable. For 24/7 operation, the lower the voltage the better
