Are you guys sure -_-
Really makes no difference which way it's facing, face it whichever way you think looks the best.

Corsair is really getting worse with their PSUs. Okay, they're not bad, but they're continuously moving further from perfect.
And even if the sticker is upside-down, it's still better than mounting the PSU upside-down. The funny thing is, though, that even cases with a top-mounted PSU would likely have the sticker upside-down since most of those are fan-down as well.
A weakness that does exist for the Corsair powersupplies is the sleeving side. Not the stock job, I mean if you want to sleeve the powersupply yourself. The wires often go from one pin to two pins, or two pins or even three pins to one pin. The pins themselves are quite rubbish too and are really uncooperative.
This is my office-at-home/gaming setup - the PC on the right on the 21.5" is what I usually use for testing things or for facebook updates while on the main screen (two cables). I use the netbook for general quotes when on the run. I have a galaxy note II for checking mail and a Samsung 10.1" for typing / watching movies / doing remote support on the run.
My gaming PC is nothing over the top as I tend to keep it mid-level, so I can sell it as "demo" every six months and upgrade.
We sell 400~600 PC's per year - to corporates. This rig plays pretty much everything at ultra and the works reliably.
Currently, it's a newish non-overclocked i5 (it was put in about two months ago, so I don't remember what speed),
Intel Mainboard (I only use genuine Intel M/B), Gigabyte 660ti 2Gb OC, 16Gb RAM
2 x 128Gb Agility OCZ SSD's, Seagate 500gb sata III. Some parts, I don't upgrade as often as others, some I give to a techie as a gift when I've had my use out of it. I have had bad experiences with AMD and they don't sell well in South Africa, so I don't support their products.

it provides no added safety benefit anymore, most modern multi rail units are split from a single rail anyway

Multi-rail is slightly safer, and while they've gotten better with single-rail, it's mostly marketting hype (but to be fair, these are seen on both sides).
And Seasonic's PSUs, for example, are different 12V-rails in multi-rails, but can be combined to a single.
Personally, i'd rather have 100A/1200W on a single rail and know that it alone can provide power for any setup. Sure, with multi-rail, you can take 1 output from different rails to connect to the system (e.g. 1 connector for each PCIE port on a single card from dual-rail) and split the load between them, but there's really not a whole lot of difference to the end user either way.
Single rail vs multi-rail has been done to death on enthusiast forums. Along with politics and religion, it's one of the things you don't discuss at the dinner table
