I suggest you take your side panel fan and put it elsewhere in the case if possible. When I installed my Xigmatek CPU cooler, I moved my side fan to the bottom of the case, so there's no interference now.

It's never a good idea to modify the heat pipes in any way. As Marshillboy suggested, moving the side panel fan is your best bet.

You could even look into getting a slimmer fan. This one is 12mm thick which is only half as thick as regular fans (25mm): Scythe SY1212SL12L 120mm Case Fan

Yeah, don't cut heatpipes. You do that, and your heatsink will become a paperweight.

Sorry, but what exactly is wrong with just taking that top protruding section of heatpipe off? it doesn't look like it's even doing anything up there =/

It is. Don't cut it. The heatpipes have to stay intact to hold in the gases.
