Default PSU fan orientation

Hi! Just a quick silly question: It appears that the PSU in the One is placed so that the PSU fan is blocked by the GPU. If the PSU fan faced out instead of in, it might suck in more air through the radiators. Just wondering, has Corsair (or anyone) tested the other PSU orientation for temps and noise?

So there is actually space between the GPU and the PSU fan for air to enter the power supply. We actually did extensive testing with this chassis and found that the current orientation was the best balance.
