I'd rather have a top located one, sucking the hot air that rises, out of the pc.. Unless I'm missing something..
The move to bottom mounted power supplies I believe came with the addition of the PSU fan hole in the case. So you could bottom mount your power supply, have it intake from a fan hole below the powersupply and have it spit it right back out the back. This also opens up the top area for fans, radiators, etc.
