The idea is that the PSU breathes fresh air via the grill in the bottom of the case and exhausts it out the rear. Otherwise it will suck already warm air from inside the case.

Google for images and you will see enthusiasts mount it the right way round, where they can.
EDIT:

In fact after looking into this further i'd say your PSU 'is' mounted the wrong way. Don't know how cause the screws just wouldn't match up. Check the holes on the PSU with the holes on the case.

Wouldn't hurt to have a look.
