Do you have the radiator fans as intake? Does that yield better temp results in your build?Yep, this picture is what most of us refer to as "flipped", as most sandwich cases have the PSU oriented the other way, by default.
Another (potential) advantage of the flipped orientation is less restriction for the fan. When I did my first cleaning of the mesh of dust, I noticed the dust only accumulated in the part of the mesh between the fan and PSU. That's a 20-30mm area (at least on the motherboard side of the case). With the flipped PSU, the exhaust vent faces the intake of the fan, which allows freer flowing intake air for the fan. In theory!
