To get the most out of it you would need to remove the IHS... So great care would need to be taken.

Adding a piece of diamond in won't help since Q=(TH-TC)/R and since the resistance for the copper/artic silver is larger than the diamonds, then having the diamond real doesnt do anything (in fact it would add more resistance). Now if you used a "paste" made out of pure diamonds (and good luck with that) and used that instead of the artic silver, then it would transfer heat better (though probably only slightly better). Or if you made the CPU block out of diamonds then that would be better.
