Default Will a power supply work if one of the two fans is blocked

My new PSU has a fan on the top of it but my case doesn't have a outlet. Will I have to cut a whole into my case or can I install it with the top fan blocked?

I wouldn't be too bothered, I have one of my fans semi blocked (by a hard drive cage) and it works fine, although it is drilled steel, so the air can circulate.

(btw. learn how to spell hole. )
