dell inspiron 580 slim PSU upgrade from 300w


Thank you for taking the time to read; 

I am upgrading my i3-550 to an i5-760 CPU thus making me have to change my heat sink. I already have an upgraded GPU so I will need to get a PSU with more max power 400w ect. I ran CPU-z for some information but cant find if i need an ATX or TFX PSU. Also a lot of Power supply's im looking at doesn't have the fan near the power cord, rather (on top or bottom) will this affect the cooling of the system internally?

The slim case models use a TFX power supply.  Can't say about the location of the fan.
