Default Data Center Recirculation Problem

Hi All,

Currently developing a data center model, the only problem is i'm not getting convergence and I seem to be getting a constant thermal recirculation where the temperature tends to infinite.

Once residuals tend to e-003 I get roughly the right shape. However, if I continue passed this and attempt e-005 I get a really savage thermal recirculation as mentioned above. I'm not sure how to get it to outflow correctly.

I looked at my boundary conditions and static pressure at the inlet becomes lower then the outlet once past e-003, surely that's incorrect?

I can't attach the model because I've just signed up. Here's the link to the google drive of the zip:

If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,
