ASUS TUF Gaming 750 W 80+ Bronze question

Hi I have been using this device for more than six months. Only now I suddenly thought about what is the safe temperature of the power supply. Such thoughts were not provoked by excitement due to the high temperature of PC components, the case (deepcool cg560) is blown well, all temperatures are absolutely satisfactory, except that the temp is confusing. CMOS on the motherboard (without radiator) - during a relatively light load (a stream of non-AAA games in 1080p 60 fps on Twitch and YouTube), which remains between 75-80 (sometimes a little over 80)C for a long time. On the first page of google, I went to a page that very carefully explained how important it is not to have a high temperature of the power supply. Since this  device does not have its own means of monitoring, a reliable way is to simply try to measure the temperature of the air that is blown out of the psu fan phisically. It is noted in that artical that it is good if the psu`s temperature is approximately equal to the temperature of the room where the computer is located, in a state of relative rest. And under load, if the temperature rises by no more than 7-8 degrees. When I raised my hand, I felt hot air, which, however, was not blowing out very actively, I would even say weak, and when I touched the perforated iron of the case, of course, it did not burn, but I felt that it was really hot, and therefore it turned out, that the temperature is significantly higher than +8 or even +10 degrees to room temperature (around 23-25 in the room) during load. So I was a bit stressed, especially when I remembered how during the installation of the psu I read the manual, looked at the pictures, which clearly showed that the psu should be installed with the fan facing up. But I have a deepcool cg560, which does not have a perforation of the case psu cover(or how to call it properly). Besides, I watched many videos of PC builds, and almost always I saw that the psu of different brands are installed with the fan facing down. So I did the same. And then I wanted to ask about this moment on the Asus official site, here. But no matter how hard I tried, I could not register for some reason and I just moved on. And now I remembered. So please, help me clarify this. 
Regards, Dmytro

As long as the psu gets good airflow, installing it with the fan facing down is ok.

Maximum operating temperature isn't listed in the tech specs, but as with most psu's, up to 50c should be fine.

Hello Dymtro,

It looks like there is a dust filter on the bottom of the case for the psu. You could remove the dust filter, this should give the psu more airflow.

Ok, thank you. So there is no problem I installed psu fan down? And what is bad temperature for this psu?
