Default power supply set up

hi i just got my cm 690 case and corsair 750tx p/s in the mail. The CM 690 has a slot for a bottom loading p/s and the fan on the corsair p/s is on the bottom of the unit. This would make the fan point straight into the vent located on the bottom of the case, pointing at the ground.

This is my first build so I am unsure of how to set it up. Does the p/s fan blow out hot air or take in cool air from the room? Should I install with the fan facing the bottom of the case or flip it over and put it facing the internals of the case?

Default Re: power supply set up

You can do it either way. I would leave the PSU fanside down facing the vent

If there was no vent i would suggest the other route.
