Actually, it should cool down a  little when you talk.  Maximum plate 
dissipation is under unmodulated carrier conditions.  The DC input to the 
final should remain unchanged regardless of modulation.  So the additional 
output power in the sidebands, at constant DC input,  means that the 
efficiency becomes higher as the  carrier is modulated, and the plates 
should cool down a bit.
