PSU with 120mm fan works with desktop case?

Hi!

In a PSU with 120mm fan, the fan is mounted on the top or bottom of the PSU?

It´s intake or exhaust?

Can I use it on a desktop case or it´s just for tower cases?

Its mounted on the bottom (larger face) of the PSU, and is used as an intake. A desktop case is usually just the same as a tower case, but turned on its side. Although you won't have natural convection helping it, you can still use it in a desktop case just fine.
