The fan on the PSU is designed to suck air from inside your case and vent it out he back of the case.

So if you mount the PSU at the top of the case the fn needs to be ideally pointing downwards. This set up will assist the CPU fan / temperatures.

Corect. The psu will pull in warm air from inside the case and blow that warm air out the rear panel.
