I don't know about extra heatsinks, because I do not ever recomend overclocking anything, it shortens the lifespan of the part in question even with added cooling, so I can't help you there. However, there is software out there for monitoring the temperature, the one I use and recomend is RivaTuner, it seems to work well for me for monitoring the temps of my video.

It would be hard to answer this without knowing exactly which videocard you have currently (manufacturer and model).

Also, are you wanting to overclock this ancient card just for fun, or because you need more performance? If the latter, I'd suggest to just go out and buy a newer card.

Assuming you are serious.................................Why are you throwing a $30 cooler on a $20 card? Even "overclocked" that card is a slug. I should know, I have one .

CPU fans work fine. GPU-Z has good temp monitoring as well.

A light weight heatsink fan off of a soclet 7 or socket 370 motherboard will work.
You will need double sided thermal tape to hold it on [removable] or thermal epoxy if you want to permanantly attach it.

[NOTE : DO NOT , under ANY circumstances use double sided thermal tape on a CPU !]

You can also pick up a $10. Video "chipset cooler" that comes with a sticky thermal pad on it.

Sorry, I forgot to add,

Aida32 is a good system info application that works well on older OS's .
It includes temps if your motherboard has the sensors.

You can DL Aida32 here,

just open it up, and where you see the video card selection box, below it is a little box with a button on it that says customize. if your video card has sensors, then click the button by customize and click the far right clock, but if the card does not have temp sensers, then theres not a program out there including riva tuner, that will read them. You can add the sensors yourself but seriously, for a card this old dont waste the money save up and buy a better one lol.
