Wow, really? I thought there needs to be space to put air out and not just 1cm.. if even that.

Underneath your psu there should be a vent for your psu to suck in fresh air. Any case made in the last decade where the psu mounts on the bottom of the case is designed for this. That is unless the Verge built your pc.

You don't "need" your PSU pulling air from the bottom. It's an option but hardly a requisite.
I observed a difference of nothing when I flipped mine from top to bottom.

I've been running my i9-9900K at 90-100% CPU for a week since I've got it with no issues.

Note that I ensured my cooling was adequate and monitored it more closely the first day, and once I was sure, no worries. It doesn't go above 80C, which is within reasonable range for this CPU, and it's fully stable.

Processors, be they AMD or Intel, are just fine to run at their limits as long as you make sure they stay within the temperature and wattage limits they were designed for. If you're at the edge of those limits, a cooling upgrade is advisable.
