It doesn't matter unless you plan to keep the hard drive running as long as posible.

I've stuck to and belive the PCB should be under when mounting the hard drive.

It doesn't matter which way round they sit. I prefer to have mine sitting horizontally (dont know why) but I have seen many cases with drives mounted vertically as well.

Just make sure the drive isnt moved when its running.
