The radiator is too long to lay down and pull air from underneath with the PSU in the bottom section.
It might be a better solution to do a dual 2x120 radiator setup. One in the bottom section pulling air in and one in the very top pushing air out. This would give you slightly more cooling but would be a bit more complicated and expensive. If you did your loop right, you could probably cool a CPU and at least one GPU with the dual 2x120 setup quite easily.
I had considered moving the PSU behind the mounted SSDs to mount my RX360 on the bottom, but then I would have had to cut a hole into the dividing section to blow the air down in with the radiator (or just let it go into the case). There is a fan right there by the SSDs pulling in air from the front, so airflow to the PSU wouldn't have been half bad.
Mounting the radiator facing the side is also more aesthetically pleasing in my opinion. You'll see when I get my window done.
