It really should be mounted horizontally (with the fans pointing to the back of the case), not vertically. Which Noctua is it?

i was wondering would it be sucking in heat from the bottom cos heat rises but my psu is facing downwards so its just my graphics card

That's why it should be mounted horizontally.

Yeah, that may cause PAM clearance issues, which I'm guessing is why you mounted it the way you did, but it really should be the other way.
