So i have either of this case all of this case have the grills on the bottom mount for the PSU should i put the power supply fan up sucking air inside the case? or downward sucking up air from the bottom of the case, Ill be putting it on my table so there's a little space below the case im just wondering is it just fine for the PSU to breath properly? i mean is it better to place it upward than downward? thanks in advance for those who would take time to answer. . Pardon my low class english speaking its not my native language

Case:

COOLER MASTER K350~k380
Cougar Solution AF2
Cougar Volant 67M5

PSU:
ANTEC VP550P 550W
Seasonic (S12II) 520watts PSU 80Plus Bronze

Either way it works but is designed to suck from the bottom!

Thanks for answering rolli, Im just really worried about its not sucking air properly facing down. . Because it has minimal space below the case . . I hope you get what i meant xD

Yes many people turn it the other way because of dust sucks up easy from floors and so on. The space underneath is still sufficient for it getting enough air for cooling, but since you are worried I would turn it the other way. The only downside to that is if it is in a multi GPU system it can be fighting the closest GPU fan for fresh air.

I see, I would only be using 1 GPU . . So what is the best way to put it? faced down or turn it the other way. . But i think this PSU's are meant to placed faced down right? Sorry for being nub on this, Because its my first time building my own rig.

Best solution

Really there is no best way but since you are using 1 GPU I would let the fan face up and help ventilate the case!
