It's pretty hot where I live, usually over 30 C

How should I set up fans in this case?

Will 7 fans (plus CPU cooler fan, PSU fan, Graphics Card fans) consume a lot of power?

Thanx :)

that is just slightly positive pressure coz the bottom intake is 140mm,if you want to increase the positive pressure you can add a fan on the side intake

30-56W maximum; it really depends on the particular fans that you're using and whether or not they are running at maximum speed all the time, on a fan controller, or are speed controlled based on temps. High ambient temps are high ambient temps whether a lot of air is being moved or not a lot of air...you just have to monitor temps...
