Could we know why you are worried about this.

Integrated graphics are not normally very powerfull so heat is not a big issue with them...

If you get into the bigger add-on video cards these things are almost a computer in themselves...

I have added 40X40X10mm fans to video cards by simple screwing them onto the heatsink. I could not for see a problem doing that to a onboard video adapter. Here is was the type of fan I am referring to...
