I'm considering a trip to Chengdu. If I must go in summer, what is best and how hot is it? Choices are early May through Aug. I live in FL, so I'm used to heat, but would prefer to choose the least hot from those dates.

May will be the best choice. The general temperature in May is ranging from 17℃ to 26℃. Besides, there is less rain. The heavy rains are concentrated in July and August, which will ruin the fun your Chengdu trip.
