Has anyone tried reversing the rear 80mm fan?

silly question i know, but has anyone done any objective testing on this? i accidently put mine in backwards so it blew air into the psu and it seems to work absolutely fine. Obviously in an unducted case this would be a major issue.

Probably not a great idea on a normal lower-front to higher-rear flow geometry, but I am doing it on my Chilli Pro. The Chilli Pro PSU is mounted on the bottom of the base.
