About Antec One Hundred PSU mounting issue

I am planning to buy an Antec One Hundred case for my new build, its a phenom II X4 955 BE,

I bought a Corsair CX430 PSU which has a 120mm fan.

Now after giving a closer look found that Antec 100 case have bottom mounted PSU place, but there is no vent at bottom of case for PSU. So it means I have to mount PSU with its fan facing upwards. Now if that is done PSU will intake air from inside of case + there is a 140mm fan at top back and a 120mm fan at back.
So my Ques. is, will 120mm PSU fan affect air circulation, will it be good or bad?
I will be mounting 2X120mm intake fans at front.

It's not an ideal configuration, but you might be able to get away with it.

Is there any reason, you can't just get a case with a top mounted power supply position?

actually now-a-days most cases come with bottom mounted PSU, Antec 100 looked very ideal to me.
