Some of the chips will get hot and the shield/heat sink does dissipate the heat 
enough to protect the chips from over heating. Without the shield/heat sink the 
chips would die prematurely. 
Put it back in!!!!

Hi Everyone;
I just installed Jiffydos in my C128 and was wondering how important the RF 
sheild is?  It looks like the sheild is also meant to act as a heatsink as 
well.  Do the chips heat up that much in a C128 to require that?
