Default Video Memory Heatsinks - Available Options?

Hello,
I have a ASUS 9280TD 128Meg Ti4200. The memory modules do not have any
heatsink, and was wondering if adding them would help, and what options
might be available for that. Any pointers are appreciated. Thanks in
advance...

I don't really think that would "help", but then I'm not sure what you mean
by "help". Is there a problem you're experiencing?

Jeff,
No problems, but this is a replacement card under warranty from ASUS
because the first card developed memory problems as evidenced by
artifacting, etc. I don't overclock ar all really, not trying to get
the last ounce of speed from a card, but I thought by eliminating some
of the heat from the video memory modules, that it could extend the
life. I noticed that my Ti200 from Visiontek had fin'd heatsinks
attached to the modules.

Really? Well, my personal opinion is that it's not going to do anything.
If the memory fails on a video card operating within stock limits, there's
something else wrong. Now it *could* possibly still be heat related, but
only with a poorly designed case with no air flow. Giving your case good
airflow (including over the video card) would be 100 times better than heat
sinks on video RAM with poor air flow.
