Just wondering what the general consensus is on the site as far as PSU fan facing up or down.

Depends on your situation. Having it face up would theoretically exhaust hot air from your system faster, but at the cost of your PSU running hotter. Having it face down gives your PSU access to fresh air. Most of the time, I'd recommend face down, unless you're putting it on carpet or something.
