Hi I recently purchase a corsair txm 750w and it fits just right on my bitfenix colossus case. The problem is my bottom psu exhaust with dust filter is now useless, because the psu fan is mount on top. can I install itupside down?

A psu can go in any orientation. Many cases nowadays have a bottom intake with dust filter. You are supposed to have the psu fan facing down for those cases. My case doesn't have a bottom vent but there is still space below my psu and I flip it just for better airflow.

thanks!, but what is the best setup for reducing heat? I believe that the psu is sucking air in it and realeases the air on to theback panel. in my case, the gpu blows hot air and my psu sucks it and release it at the back of the case or will it be better if the psu sucks fresh air beneath the tray?

The PSU fans main purpose is to cool the PSU.
Your other fans should be set to blow air through the case. Front intake (cool air), back (and maybe top) exhaust (hot air).
