Has anyone tested this claim of a cooler PC with the PSU fan facing up into the case instead of down and drawing air from outside?

Edit: I see with at least this unit, it was found to be so, What about other units?

I have my computer case in a dusty area of my house and on the floor. i flipped my psu fan to face inside the case because i was sick of having to clean the dust filter every week or so. I'm paranoid about psu dust death. I have PLENTY of case fans(5) so i'm not worried about the psu overheating in this configuration.

"It's common knowledge that hot air rises, so if we want to improve airflow inside a chassis, we have to help move hot air up and out with fans installed on the top or back. We'll have to revisit this topic in a story about PSU orientation and its effect on case cooling."
-I'll be looking forward to the article.

I just won this PSU at a LAN this past weekend. I would use it, but I won a Silverstone 850w at the last LAN. Craigslist here we come.

Extremely & pleasantly surprised by the results considering the fact that the OEM of this unit (*Sirfa) isn't considered among the best ones(*more likely a mediocre one, based on their history). But apparently Thermaltake managed to take the best possible results from an -only- adequate OEM such as Sirfa which is impressive !
