Cooling a heat source with a fan

I am trying to simulate a forced convection situation where I have a strap that emits 1000 watts inside of an encloser. I have two 260 cfm fans cooling it and i need to know what is the temperature of that strap. The problem is, it seems no matter on the volume flow rate of the fans, the temperature of the strap does not change... i have a feeling that the program is ignoring the forced convection and takes in only natural convection (air at 20C). How do I fix this?
