This makes no sense at all. PSUs don't blow air into the case at all...
It doesn't matter how the PSU is possitioned, they always suck air out of the case, not blow it in.
Yes, but they expel the air that they intake somewhere. My pre-built had the fan facing downwards, and no vent on top. I didn't see any place for the hot air to go, besides into the case.
This was in the 90's, and my parents bought it from a local shop. I knew jack shit about computers at that time, so I guess my local shop shouldn't have been building computers.
That is my one and only experience with a top mounted fan.
