I have a passive PSU. Both the user manual and the markings on the PSU itself say that that the ventilation grill should face up. However, my small case only allows PSU in a 90 degree angle, so the ventilation points at the motherboard.
Is there any other reason to position the PSU correctly other than temperatures? The case should have reasonable ventilation and only low loads, meaning integrated GPU, SSDs and T-line CPU (power optimized), so I'm wondering if I can use incorrect PSU angle safely.
PSU: Seasonic 460W fanless platinum
Case: Raijintek Metis Plus
