And 3 140mm Fans + 3 140mm LED Fans

I was thinking of getting a 1500w PSU but I don't know if it is enough for this build. So if you guys can tell me what power supply I should get that would be great !

A Seasonic X-850 will be more than capable of handling the power with comfortable temperatures.

I would agree with your 1500 Watt choice for four Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition cards and your Intel Core i7-3970X Extreme Edition system especially if any overclocking is being contemplated.
