Just watch it like a hawk. It shouldn't be more than slightly warm to the touch and even that is a poor indicator.

Wouldn't the air from the bottom of the case be cooler than the air from underneath the GPU?

Yes, more than likely. but we're worried about the quantity not the temperature.

yes sorta.

Having cool air is great but if that air can't get to it its quite useless.

Think of you.... Its a nice cool day out, but if youre mouth is taped close, you can't breath.

Here are a few pictures showing the clearance below the PSU. As you can see, I have it wide open along the bottom of the case, so the front intake fan is blowing right on it...
Another question I have is about the side intake fan. Should I find some sort of dust filter for it? The front fans on this case are shielded by dust filters...

Ya the PSU should be fine.

Honestly dust is going to get in one way or another all my intakes had filters and it still was a dust monster. Dust filters do limit it but I wouldn't pay up for them, IMO.

Well since there was no change in GPU temps, I just flipped it back to orient the fan up.

Kinda messy, just added the UV lights, new fans, the bottom is messy looking, but for window aesthetics, its managed well.

Blinding! I prefer the non-lit up case. Decent wire management, though.
