Both Zalman and > Arctic Silver sell one. I use a different method. The heatsinks I use are those: http://www.reichelt.de/bilder/web/artikel/C800/V5619A_F.jpg They sell them in sizes for 40, 28 and 24 pin ICs. You can use thermal adhesive to mount them, but I don't like the idea of permanently covering up the MOS/CSG logo... I use a small drop of thin heatsink compound in the middle of the IC and then use the heatsink to spread it out until the layer is as thin as I can make it. Then I use a drop of normal adhesive (not white glue or wood glue) at each end. Once dry it'll hold the heatsink in place during normal use but allows it to be removed without a trace if so desired. I've used this method for years and so far haven't had a heatsink fall off. Also, if a socketed IC gets a heatsink, I put a small label on the underside that tells you what it is, including the datecode.
