The palm rest is the primary means for heat dissipation in the Mini 9. The pads are "Thermal Gap Filler" material which conduct heat from the CPU and chpset to the metal plate.

I've recently had an original stec ssd death in one of my M9s after only about 6 months use, and this thread has got me wondering if heat was the cause, rather than too many writes. The M9 with the death always seemed to run hotter than my others. I'll check the heat pads on it, but it was also the one that had the battery left in, so maybe that made it run hotter.
