Default Power Supply Install Question

I am installing Antec TP-550. Does it matter whichside is up? Currently, I have the fan on the top. The reason I ask is that I noticed that the sticker was upside down after I installed it, but the "Antec" name on the side was right side up. Any comments?

just make sure that the holes on the back of the case match up with the holes that are on the PSU. If that happens, then you should be good.

Ok, thanks, they actually line up either way. P.S. Our computers are nearly identical, same case, cpu, memory.
