If it's a 486 dx2/33mhz, no you don't need a heat sink, just the power supply fan.
If it's a 486 dx2/66mhz, yes you'll need a heatsink, and possible a case fan too.

(I'm not sure if it's the server or my cable that's slow today....maybe my brain too.)

If you take a truth and follow it blindly, it will become a Falsehood and you a Fanatic.
