I'd suggest looking for a replacement board, since you don't know if they fell off while the machine was in operation (possibly baking a part or two), or in transit (easily the most plausable explaination) - either way, the loose heatsinks are a symptom of a larger problem (rough handling), the extent of which is unknown right now...

Of course, having said that, I'm sure I'd consider starting the machine with them off ;^)
