Before i flip my psu upside down, the fan used to be facing up
Here's an idea, if you don't mind modding your case.

Flip the PSU, then give it it's own blowhole so it can suck in outside air. That will cool the PSU better, and make it more stable.

While you're cutting, add a blowhole exhaust for your case, as well.

I found an old pc fan from a broken comp. And I found out that it is a Brushless DC fan from the company Delta electronics at 3250rpm, 37.4 CFM, and 34dBA. It's also a 3-pin and an 80mm fan. I'm guessing the CFM/dBA ratio isn't too good? So far I have 140mm intake in front, 120mm exhaust in rear, and 120mm intake on side. And I have another side fan slot available, should I use this fan I found? The available fan slot is in front of the graphic card. If I use this will the air circulation be fine? Or maybe a top blowhole?
