Are there PSUs which have fans placed downwards towards the motherboard?

is it good for the motherboard, getting warm air from psu directly at it?

Are you talking about bottom mounted PSU or top?

You point your PSU fan toward the bottom vent of your case, don't blow heat in.

Normal rule of thumb is... top/rear are air outlets and bottom sides are air intake. So add them all together. It should blow out!

If you are referring to the picture that you posted.... The PSU should be blowing out, opposite of what is shown. If the rear fan that is shown should blow out.

Its no going to hinder the actual working of the PC. But when you are overclocking and gaming for a long time. the CPU/Motherboard temps would go up.
