HI, PSU needs cooling from top side too. It is about 5-10W of heat here. It is better to mount it cca 4cm above PSU to the frame.

Without the bucket the power supply is cool at the top, can barely feel any heat while the printer is running.

I tested it with a thermistor after installing the bucket and it is 2 degrees C warmer at the top for me. Seems like a negligible difference. Keep in mind (I think) the plastic above the PSU is 0.5mm thick. With a 0.2mm layer height, this is only two layers thick which leaves plenty of air gaps when printed. Feel free to remix the design if you want to improve it, the source files are included.
