so, the fan inside the case intakes air, and the air flows out the back? (the psu i'm going to use only has one fan, which is inside the case, on the bottom of the psu)

Yes that is how mine is and that's how just about every other one I've seen is. Fan pulls air from inside of case and into the PSU, then on mine is just has a vent on the back where it all blows out into the room.
