Id just find an old socket A heatsink chop it up and fix it to the NB with a 40-60mm fan on it.

That will be better and cheaper than a dedicated cooler

I've used old socket 370 coolers before, those look MEAN on a northbridge, almost like a second CPU

An old Socket7/370/A cooler with a couple of holes drilled and tapped in the base so it can be mounted through the board with machine screws works well.
