Default Power supply question

For power supplies with one fan (especially the 120mm that I keep seeing)...do they require a case with a 120mm hole at the top (when the power supply is at the top of the case?) Thanks in advance.

For example: Newegg.com - ENERMAX Liberty ELT500AWT ATX12V 500W Power Supply 90V~265V (Auto Adjusted) UL, cUL, TUV, CB - Retail

Fat.Clown is right... you mount the PSU with the fan facing downward towards the inside of the case... it will draw out the air thru the PSU and out the back, helping airflow.

Thanks. I wasn't sure you could just throw it in there upside down. I appreciate the help.
