  1. when positioned in the top of a case, the PSU should be fan down, you are good to go.
  2. the screws will only line up in one way... they are standardized.

    As long as the case is made to the normal standards and not some custom rig, any conforming PSU SHOULD fit...

    However... Measure the dimensions of the one in there now and use it for a guide when looking at new ones.

    but for the corsair cx600 the fan is up and i saw many people installing it at the bottom left corner of their cabinets. Can i install it in inverted position (i mean the fan facing down) If i install it in the standard position i.e. fan facing up the psu may over heat due to lack of ventilation

    Yes, that's the way it was meant to be installed in a top mount case ( didn't somebody already say this ? ).
    They tend to be installed upside down in bottom mount cases that aren't vented.
    When you see the picture of the psu, and see the big fan, you are looking at the bottom of the powersupply.
  5. thanks everyone for your help i wanted to upgrade my psu so that I can upgrade my graphics card and unlock my cpu cores
