A PSU exhausts hot air outside the case. So it blows it out the back by the plug.

so there is a small opening on the bottom of my case that it can pull from but when it is in the desk it will just pull its own exhaust so should i have it full air out of the case?

Not exactly sure what you are asking. If the PSU is a bottom mount then the fan inside the case should face up. If a top mount then the fan should face down.

Ok it is a bottom mount but it has holds drilled in the bottom of the case so you can install it both ways what way would be the best atm i have it getting air from under the case but its pulling its exhuast back in should i put it the other wya and pull out of case
