Antec hcg intake/exhaust question

Hey guys

So I've been thinking about my PSU placement lately, I have placed it upside down (fan facing the bottom) for easy cabling.

I was wondering if my PSU brings air out of the case or into the case. If it brings air out then I should flip it right side up right, so it stays cooler inside?

PSU is Antec hcg 620

Thanks for the opinions

power supplies draw air up through the fan, into the unit and out the rear. so the best place for it is the fan facing down pulling in cool air from the outside of the case.
