Default Newbie needs help with fan config

So I have a i7 920 D0 at 3.5 ghz on an Arctic Coolong Freezer 7 Rev 2. I just bought a Corsair H50 with a 70 cfm blue led fan for 4 ghz and beyond. I currently have the stock fans installed with side and rear exhaust and lower front intake. I plan to buy two scythe s-flex 1200 rpm fans that provide 49 CFM each at 20 dba. I'm aiming for a nice push pull setup that's not too loud. I have 2 questions.

I plan to place the blue led fan at the top for exhaust. The top of is just 10 cm max from the bottom of my wood desk. Will the desk be affected by the hot air? Will performance be affected by the desk. I'm planning to have the H50 exhausting out the back with the push pull. Almost forgot, my case is the coolermaster cm690

I have an EX58-UD5. How can I make sure the 2 push pull fans are controlled properly without having to buy a hardware fan controller?

Any help is appreciated.
