[rescue] Sun drive array heatsinks?

Each of the drives in my D1000 has an aluminum plate fastened
to the underside. (P/N 340-5928-01) I assume these are used
to improve cooling for the drives ("heat plate").
I am moving the drives to a 711 enclosure (different drive
orientation, different air flow patterns, etc.). I'm wondering
if I should leave the plates on the drives or pull them.
My current approach is; lave them on and see if anything
gets too hot; if so, try removing them ;> (not very
scientific :< )
Thanks for any light you can shed on this...
