First, welcome.
DO some reading (and searching) on here, It been talked about many times. But you need to do BOTH, move the hot air up and bring the cold air down.

Moving Hot Air off stove

Best way to move the heat?

If you can allow the hot air to move up naturally, that will be the best. Just providing a path for the cold air to return will increase the effectiveness. I don't like to use fans unless absolutely necessary.
