@mlarreta - The tutorial you have shared looks to be an example of natural convection, not forced convection.

@daniel11 - Try this public project I found, it has a fan on the inlet (mass flow rate BC), and a vent for the outlet (0 Pres BC). My experience in electronics cooling has been with fans on the outlet (to keep the electronics cooler, and to not pressurize the electronics box), but this should give you a good idea on how to approach the problem.
