Dismantling the cooler was an easy affair and here's what we found underneath the hood:-

Essentially, MSI retained the exact same PCB design of the GeForce 6600 GT (AGP) for the NX6600-VTD128 Diamond, but integrated a standard GeForce 6600 GPU. This also allowed MSI to leverage on newer and more scalable DD3 graphics memory chips, which is perfect for the higher specs required on the Diamond edition. Hence, the Diamond edition GeForce 6600 actually has a whole lot more in common with MSI's Geforce 6600 GT than the standard edition NX6600 series.
