So i just got my 900D and am installing things now when i realized that all the 900d builds ive seen have the psu mounted like the pic below. This confuses me as in that orientation the PSU draws in air from the radiator (or if you reverse the radiator it still steals air from the PSU). Is there any reason not to flip the PSU around the other way so the PSU (mine is a seasonic platinum 1200) draws fresh air in from the other side of the 900D?

Appreciate a quick response as im assembling now.

Thank you!

Is there a filter behind the PSU? if not then the answer is no you cant flip it.

Yes, of course there is a filter for the 900d.

I just wasnt sure if there might be some other reason why you shouldnt flip the PSU the other way (and why all the 900d builds ive seen got them the way pictured).
