do you think it would make an air flow and temp difference if i had a PSU that had a fan on the back (like usualy) and one on the bottom to pull air out?

I don't think it would because if the fan is at the bottom, it would be sucking in hot air that was rising to the top of your case via other components (CPU, vid card, hard drives).

not really. The biggest thing to help your case temp would be an intake fan @ the front & an exhaust fan out the top of the case. I've personally seen the biggest diff temp wise w/ the top mounted exhaust fan.

The primary concept w/ case cooling is that the intake & exhaust should normally balance although its better to have too many exhaust fans than intake ones since dead air is not good.

Yes, more outtake= better airflow.. air usually enters on all the holes around the case
