You did the right thing. The fan is supposed to be on the bottom of the PSU, for the most part for ATX style cases, the processor is generally located under where that fan puts air out too. As long as it fits correctly in the back of the case, and you have that fan pointing down, inside the case, it's good to go. It won't mess up the PSU, that's how it's designed to be installed.

well it's good to see that you used some logical sense in the matter and realized that the fan would be blocked if you kept it the original way! lol. But yeah the fan is actually meant to point down so now you have it in the correct position and definitely won't harm anything.

You're good. Just screw the PSU and connect the wires and you're good!
