Just got my Corsair TX750. Does the fan go up or does it face down?

Does it even matter? Down would be best right?

If your case has a bottom vent, then face it down. If not, face up is usually a better option.

Does it blow air out or in? I have venting on the bottom of my case.

I'd like to believe most, if not ALL PSU's suck in air through the 120/140mm fan to cool its own components down. If your case allows you the access, then face it outwards.

Then they vent that hot air out the back directly, right?

Yes. The hot air will exhaust from the vents through positive pressure from the intake fan of the PSU.
